Right, they said it. Some security wonk or another. "Looks like Al Qaeda" (ETA 13:56 CEST - Al Qaeda claims responsibility) And cited similarities to Madrid. And the IRA has never carried out anything of this scale without prior warning.

Fuck. FUCK.

THE TOP OF THAT BUS WAS TOTALLY BLOWN OFF I fucking hate being powerless and able only to watch and cry and just look at the people on the pavement and the walking wounded and there is NOTHING I CAN DO.

BBC: updates.
jeconais's updates.
See caribbeanblue's post for more links.

ETA: Confirmed at least six (13:15 CEST - seven) four explosions (in seven places o.O;)with no evidence of chemical or biological content in the blasts.
ETA2: France upped security measures as a result of the London blasts, other European capitals reported to be following suit.
ETA3: :O OMGWTFBBQ???? BOMB THREATS IN BUDAPEST, THEY ARE EVACUATING SHOPPING CENTRES WTF WTF *CRIES*
ETA4: It's probably copycats and I doubt there's any real threat but the procession of fire trucks I can see from out my window is fucking scary.
ETA4.3: The cops were searching for hours but they turned up nothing. I'm calling hoax, though it hasn't been confirmed by local news yet.
ETA4.5: Local news just confirmed that the bomb threats were a hoax. WTF, fellow citizens of fair Budapest. WTF.
ETA5: I'm going to go and attempt to drown myself in the shower. :( Sadly I know the death toll in London will only rise by the time I come back. Fuck. Attempt failed. I was right about death toll.
ETA6: xylodemon has a post where you can vent, hang out, chat, whatever.

Blair: "it's reasonably clear that there have been a series of terrorist attacks"
