From such good news to such awful.

Another cowardly terrorist act has befallen the innocent persons of this world.

Our thoughts and wishes are with those who have suffered in the atrocity that has hit London today.

As shocking as it was inevitable :(

Those who refuse to be intimidated, i.e. the majority, are brave people - personally I'd find it very difficult to live and work under such a constant treat in a major centre like London, a threat that is frankly insurmountable outside of the most rigorous of intellegence.

Utterly shocking and I hope that the security services in the UK catch the animal criminal elements involved.

Paris mayor questions London's Olympic bid

British Prime Minister Tony Blair

Paris mayor Betrand Delanoe has claimed that London's winning bid to stage the 2012 Olympics breached the rules.

Delanoe, presdent of the Paris bid, said London had not respected the rule of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) stating that meetings between bid officials and IOC members should be only informal.

"The IOC knows that British Prime Minister Tony Blair had written to IOC members to offer to meet them," Delanoe told reporters.

Delanoe said that Blair had then met IOC members in his hotel suite in Singapore before Wednesday's vote, in which London scored a narrow victory over Paris.

"Everybody was aware of it and could see it," Delanoe said.

"That's against the rules. I saw people coming out of Blair's suite."
