People
trapped in the London Underground. Image from
moblog.co.uk [1] London Police have confirmed 52 people have been killed and 700+ people have been injured after bomb attacks struck the Underground network and double-decker buses in London. In what appears to be the first major break in the London terrorist attacks, police may have discovered two unexploded bombs as they sifted through the wreckage of the four bombs that did go off. Scotland Yard has denied finding undetonated explosive devices in the wreckage. See Scoop's news roundup... [2]

    Sutton Off To China For Pre-DOHA Round Meetings

    - Trade Negotiations Minister Jim Sutton leaves for China on Monday to attend a meeting of trade ministers looking for solutions as part of the World Trade Organisation's Doha Development Round. Mr Sutton will be attending a "mini-ministerial" meeting in Dalian, China. He said that while New Zealand was having a lot of success with bilateral trade agreements, the Government's top trade priority was the WTO negotiations. The Labour-Progressive Government have successfully completed three trade agreements, with another three currently being negotiated. See... Minister to attend trade meeting in China [1] ALSO:

    UN Peacekeeper Troops Storm Through Haitian Slum

    - United Nations peacekeepers in Haiti have raided two areas of a slum district in an operation designed to rout gangs that have been active in Port-au-Prince, the Caribbean country’s capital, and have killed or wounded several gang members, a mission spokesman said. During the operation yesterday in Cité Soleil’s Bois-Neuf and Douillard areas, “the criminals, who tried desperately to fight back using weapons, were either killed or wounded,” suffering heavy losses, the spokesman for the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), Lieutenant Colonel El Ouafi Boulbars, said yesterday.

    London Bombings Commentary

    Peter Cresswell - "We are all Londoners today." Doesn't that describe the way all people with a soul feel this morning.

    Deborah Coddington - Most of us will be glued to the television or radio today, listening for news about London, and effects of the senseless, mindless, irrational collectivism that motivates the fundamentalist and nihilist beliefs of the terrorists. How anyone can call these murderers "freedom fighters" is beyond me. See... Liberty Belle: The London Bombings [5]

    Marjorie Cohn: The Supreme Court Battle Begins

    - With the unexpected resignation of Sandra Day O'Connor, George Bush finds himself on the horns of a dilemma. After his 2000 campaign pledge to appoint justices in the mold of Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, Bush garnered the crucial support of right-wing evangelical Christians. Mobilizing in thousands of churches across the country, they provided the foot soldiers and the votes to elect and re-elect Bush. Their eyes were on the big prize - overturning Roe v. Wade, to stop the "holocaust" of abortion. The Supreme Court vacancy they've prepared for so long and hard has finally materialized, and the right-wing fundies are calling in their chits. See...
