    Blasts in London

    Even as Londoners recovered from the revelry, hangovers and gloating following the news that the city would host the 2012 Olympic Games, a series of blasts have rocked the city just past noon local time. There were blasts in the London Underground as well as on a bus. More than thirty have died. Scotland Yard, in a statement, confirms the four sites which were attacked.

    Follow the story at Yahoo! News, Wikipedia, Google News, Yahoo! UK, and BBC News.

    Either the French are really mad on having lost out on the IOC vote or there're some people who really want to make their presence and protest felt against the G-8 summit in Scotland or its those terrorists again.

    Update: Turns out a terrorist group linked to the Al-Qaeda has claimed responsibility.

    Reports from The International Herald Tribune, The Economist, The New York Times and Slate.
