British Terror

Posted by on July 7 at 8:22 AM

Key facts at present:

*At least 4 explosions across central London, with targets including the subway and a double-decker bus packed with commuters

*Identified as a “coordinated terror attack,” which was quickly claimed by al Qaeda (this claim hasn’t been verified, and al Qaeda would probably claim responsibility for the explosion of acne on the chin of an Olsen twin)

*50 or so dead, hundreds more wounded, with the number of deaths predicted to rise as the aforementioned bombed bus gets figured out

“US cities go on “heightened alert,” specifically NY, Boston, Washington DC, Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles
