where did you hear it? or do you mean they're still looking for the bombs?
ah right, i get you. i guess i'll just check back in half an hour..news is always sketchy at the start..sky news just mentioned something about bomb disposal units driving by at top speed..psycho bob said:BBC News 24 received reports that controlled explosions had been carried out, very few details are available at the moment.

that would be my guess, tehy found them and are destroying themasif786 said:can someone please explain to me exactly what a 'controlled explosion' is? have they found bombs and are detonating them..what exactly does it mean?
i'm a bit confused as to what's going on..
