London bomb blasts

Since I do not have a television set and no radio or newspapers, all the information I get comes through the web.
You can see what BBC news is reporting about it http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/in_depth/uk/2005/london_explosions/default.stm. You can see what most of the traditional news media outlets are saying about it at Yahoo or Google News. What is interesting to observe is the information coming from the *new* media. While this information does not merit the same level of trust that I accord some traditional media outlets, it is nevertheless, remarkably richer with more opinions, first hand accounts, pictures and videos.

I still remember the 1993 Mumbai bombings that killed upwards of 200 people in various parts of the city and how restricted our access to information was at that time.
