Was Israel Warned Ahead of First Blast?

The Israeli Embassy in London was notified in advance, resulting in Finance Minister Binyamin Netanyahu remaining in his hotel room rather than make his way to the hotel adjacent to the site of the first explosion, a Liverpool Street train station, where he was to address and economic summit.

At present, train and bus services in London have been suspended following the series of attacks.

Israeli officials have stressed the advanced Scotland Yard warning does not in any way indicate Israel was the target in the series of apparent terror attacks.
