Police sources say a bomb is suspected in a London bus explosion.
Police are confirming there were at least three explosions on buses in central London.
Police also say there were serious casualties in the London explosions. There are now reports of two deaths.
The British government was slow to release information following a series of coordinated terror attacks in Central London on Thursday, and cable TV stations scrambled to get the latest details, even as bombs kept going off.
A number of simultaneous explosions rocked — and apparently still are rocking — the city’s transportation infrastructure, a scenario some are comparing to Madrid.
The first series of blasts hit the London subway system toward the end of the morning rush hour, around 8:50 a.m. London time (4:50 a.m. EDT). Press reports put the number of subway explosions at five.
An explosion destroyed a double-decker bus near Russell Square (search) not long after several blasts were reported on London subways, police said. A witness said the entire top deck of the bus was destroyed.
“I was on the bus in front and heard an incredible bang, I turned round and half the double decker bus was in the air,” Belinda Seabrook told Press Association (search), the British news agency.
