7-8-05 - LONDON (AP) London's Metropolitan Police Commissioner says more than 50 people were killed by yesterday's bombings in London.
Sir Ian Blair told a news conference this morning that some bodies are still in the wreckage of one of the three subway trains hit by the nearly simultaneously blasts. At least 22 of the hundreds of people who were wounded are hospitalized in serious or critical condition.
As for who did it, Blair says the coordinated series of attacks on subways and a double-decker bus have "all the hallmarks of al-Qaida."
An assistant police commissioner says each of the bombs contained less than ten pounds of high explosives. Those in the subways were left on the floors of the cars. Investigators say there's no evidence the attacks were carried out by suicide bombers.
