    Apparently there's also been a second incident in Barcelona, a car hit two police officers. No word on whether it was intentional or not...

    Device detonated on Tube train in London.

    Parsons Green explosion: video shows burning device as police launch terrorism inquiry – latest updates

    Doesn't look like anyone was killed or seriously injured, thankfully.
    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    So this just happened: they're not sure if it's a terrorist yet or not.

    Several people have been injured after a car reportedly drove into people outside London’s Natural History Museum.

    Scotland Yard said a number of pedestrians had been injured in the incident in Exhibition Road in South Kensington shortly after 2.20pm on Saturday.

    Pictures and footage shared on social media showed street damage and a large police presence in the capital’s museum district, which is home to the NHM, the Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

    That's the road I walked along to get between the station and the Royal Albert Hall to see Tori on Wednesday.

    ETA.

    The Met are not treating it as a terror incident at this time.

    I probably went off half-cocked because the last time I was over there, I walked past that museum every day. I'm so glad there were no significant injuries.

    ^ It's understandable given the strength of the police reaction and the amount of conflicting information coming out.

    Mogadishu truck bomb: 500 casualties in Somalia’s worst terrorist attack
    At least 500 people are believed to have been killed or seriously injured in Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia, in one of the most lethal terrorist acts anywhere in the world for many years.

    The death toll from Saturday’s attack, which involved a truck packed with several hundred kilograms of military-grade and homemade explosives, stood at 239 on Sunday but is expected to rise as more bodies are dug from the rubble spread over an area hundreds of metres wide in the centre of the city. At least 300 people were injured, according to local reports.

    Rescue workers on the ground said it would be difficult to establish a definitive death toll because the intense heat generated by the blast meant the remains of many people would never be found.
    What the fuck is wrong with our species.
