London under attack

On the day after it got the 2012 Olympics, and on the day when everyone's attention is directed at the G8 summit in Scotland, London seems to have been attacked by terrorists. A number of explosions in the public transport system were heard. (One bus blast near Russell Square, and 20 fatal casualties, is now confirmed by the Scotland Yard.)

All the tube lines are being suspended. Mobile networks are down now, for preserving phone communication for emergency services. All the buses in central London are just suspended.

I was at home, as usual, when things happened around 8:45 am. I'm physically fine, but feel depressed by this.

And, annoying Indian sales pitch calls are in operation normally. (I just got one.)

Masa,
I am safe and it seems most of my friends are.
I am angry, very angry.
