And In Other News...

Huge co-ordinated bomb blasts on the Mumbai (neé Bombay) commuter train system happened today, at least 170 people killed. According to the BBC no one has claimed responsibility yet. India has had her fair share of home grown terrorism over the years, so it could be domestic incident or it could be linked to the "war on terror". It's a ghastly ghastly act whoever has done it and we should not ignore it or treat it as being less newsworthy because it hasn't happened in Europe or America, which we have a sad tendency to do.
