Blair Set To Leave Gleneagles For London
SCOOP NEWS-ROUNDUP: Britain's Prime Minister Tony Blair is set to leave the G8 summit in Gleneagles Scotland for London after a series of explosions rocked the capital bringing the underground to a standstill and at least three buses stuck in bomb-attacks.
At least two trains are reportedly trapped in the London underground, rescue workers are attempting to get shafts clear to empty the underground of smoke and fumes. Hundreds of people are trapped inside.
Tony Blair said the G8 deliberations would continue as planned despite the attacks.
Blair said: "It is particularly barbaric that this has happened on a day when people are meeting to try to help the problems of poverty in Africa, the long-term problems of climate change and the environment."
Obviously shaken, Blair said the attacks were "clearly terrorist" attacks and "designed and aimed to coincide with the opening of the G8".
