Terror Attacks Kill Dozens in London

7-7-05 - LONDON (AP) A senior police official says there are a "number of fatalities" at one London subway station after today's series of explosions that hit the city's trains and buses.

A shaken Tony Blair says the half dozen blasts were clearly a series of "barbaric" terrorist attacks.

A U.S. law enforcement official says at least 40 people have been killed in the explosions in London.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity, because British officials haven't yet made public the death toll. The official says US authorities learned of the number from their British counterparts.

Hospital officials say more than 300 people have been treated for injuries at London hospitals.

London police won't speculate on who might be responsible, but say investigators found indications of explosives at one of the blast sites.

The explosions -- during London's morning rush hour -- sent bloodied and blackened passengers and witnesses fleeing debris-strewn blast sites. Transit officials quickly shut down the entire Underground system.

Police superintendent John Morgan says there are confirmed deaths at the city's Edgware Road station, where a blast ripped through a crowded train, but adds the situation is still confused. Emergency workers set up a medical command post near the station.
