Terrorists caused mass disruption, but thankfully no deaths, when four explosive devices were found on three tube trains and a London bus yesterday. All the terrorists escaped after their devices failed to detonate properly. The
London Ambulance Service reported that there were no injuries in the incidents at Shepherd's Bush, Oval and Warren Street tube stations and on a bus in Hackney.br> In a statement, Prime Minister Tony Blair said the British people would not be intimidated: ‘I think that everyone is canny enough to know what these people are trying to do, whoever is responsible for this latest incident, and that is to intimidate people and to scare them and to frighten them to stop them going about their normal business.
‘It is important that we respond by keeping to our normal lives and doing what we want to do, because to do otherwise is, in a sense, to give them the very thing they are looking for. It is not going to change what we do. To react in any other way is to engage in the game they want us to engage in.’
