It is perhaps fitting that I post something from Scotland.
The Scotsman is reporting 12 dead and 150 injured from the bombings in London.
The same newspaper quotes Paul Wilkinson, a terrorism expert from St Andrews University, saying “It is quite clear that a major terrorist attack has been carried out on London. The attack has all the trademarks of the al Qaeda network,” he said.
The timing of the incidents came on the opening day of the G8 summit in Scotland.
Tony Blair says the terrorist attack will not stop the meeting or change the agenda at the summit.
