New London Incident

Something going on in London.

TV news is reporting 3 tube stations evacuated, possible small explosion, possibly a package exploding, smoke seen, and that emergency services are dispatching. Unconfirmed reports of gunshots heard on a subway platform and a possible incident on a bus.

developing. . .

Update: confirmed thus far: emergency services are dispatching to 3 tube stations due to an explosion. Reuters coverage, which is the same as everywhere else right now.

Update: Reuters crashed, BBC picks up the slack. ABC reporting that the sounds heard by some passengers were either gunshots or detonators. VERY unconfirmed.

Final Update: Incident appears to be nail bomb explosion along with possibly 3 failed bombing attempts. 1 confirmed injured. I'll resume blogging as normal when full information comes out.
