    London bombs 

    On the terrible news from London this morning, some links (new entries are being added at the bottom):

    The Guardian Newsblog is on top of the bombing story with constant updates, including eyewitness reports, messages from around the world, photos, mood at the G8 Summit in Edinburgh, and lots more. The Guardian also has a page of comments from bloggers.

    There's already a Wikipedia entry on the bombing, which I'm sure will be constantly updated over the next few days. The amount of information and links here is incredible, including transport info, eyewitness photo links, lots lots more.

    BBC news on the explosions, includes a reporters' log, witness photos, lots more. is collecting lots of links, photos, and more, in chronological order.
    The London Underground blog is blogging the story, too.
    A guide at has lots of links to news compilations and London guides.

    Yahoo! News Full Coverage of London Bombings will, as usual, contain lots of links to news stories and Websites with useful information.

    The BBC says it has found a website with the al-Qaeda claim of responsibility for the bombings.

    CNN's minute-by-minute timeline.

    Middle East expert Juan Cole
    speculates on reason for bombing and ties it with recently started trial of imam Abu Hamza Misri in Britain.

    Metroblog: London has lots and lots of comments from various bloggers, including lots of good links. One blogger said:
      "Call me a coward if you like, but the first instinct was to get as far away from London as possible. And I was not alone. I have NEVER seen so many taxi's on the motorway heading west away from the city."

    Someone has created a site that shows Bombing locations on GoogleMaps; also has news links and timeline.

    There are some more links and observations on the Observer Blog from The Guardian's sister paper.

    Houston Chronicle's NewsBlog: London Blasts. Some interesting stuff here, including a post about a photo that seems to becoming the definitive image of these attacks.

    Also found via the NewsBlog, above: A homeland security blog has lots of interesting links on the bombings and security reaction, including one really useful post about how to use a cell phone during an emergency (London's cellular networks were overwhelmed today):
      What should they have done?
      Use short SMS text messages to reassure relatives they were safe (texting not only uses minimal bandwidth, but can also route around disruptions in the network, since it's packet-based) and then get off the phone.

    Useful advice for everyone to keep in mind when something important happens.

    UK Resilience is the official government emergency response website and has information on disaster plans.

    Boing Boing has some more good links to photos, blogs, etc.
