Not much has been revealed about who planted the car bomb in central London early this morning.
BBC News online has some pictures from the area. A bit obvious to point this out but I think it’s worth saying that whoever did this planned an indiscriminate act of mass-murder rather than making some elaborate political point.
Updated: Have changed the title of this topic to reflect the attack today in Glasow. What saddens me is also that regular commenters here cannot help descending into making smart-arse remarks at each other for little particular reason. If a bunch of progressive readers of a progressive blog cannot help attacking each other, what hope is there for the rest of this country?
Update 2: It’s too early to speculate how the two attacks are related but I wouldn’t be surprised if there were more copycat killers.
Update 4: I have some sympathy for Josh Freedman Berthoud‘s warning on using the phrase ‘Asian looking men’. They did the same with Charles De Menzes and look how that turned out.
