    Yes, just caught this story on Twitter as I checked who was to appear on Andrew Marr's programme tomorrow.

    Am following the story on the Guardian and BBC websites.

    Turin's main piazza evacuated during the Watch party for the soccer Champions League final match due to a reported explosion, Italian news report that it was a false alarm.

    Wow. My condolences to the individuals and families affected and the people of Britain.

    News shows a second incident going on in another place- restuarant stabbing. :(

    It's hard to imagine this is happening so regularly. I grew up in Connecticut, right outside NYC, my dad, relatives, friends' parents, worked in Manhatten, so 9/11 was obviously very traumatic. I never expected such another disaster could happen again, clearly a naive sense of security. I was in Israel when Hamas bombs were flying through the sky, not so surprising, but I never expected a year later living in Boston to see dozens of ambulances lining my street in response to the Marathon bombing. It's really terrible when these things happen in your own back yard.

    I'm sorry you guys have to keep experiencing these atrocities. Hang in there Britain.

    CNN International had footage with Argentinian TV graphics superimposed on BBC graphics.

    Is the second attack related to the one on the bridge ?

    Maybe, maybe not.
    Let's wait a bit before making this 100% political.

    Why, this is one of the most peaceful acts of peace that I have ever seen. My guess is, radical Taoists are behind this.

    It was not a car, a van was reported and also shown quite a while ago.

    Sky showed live the police evacuating the passersby I think from the second area some minutes ago.

    Sounds like potentially now 3 separate events going on. Bridge attack definitely looks, smells, and quacks like terrorism. It's possible these other events could be coincidental and unrelated. I certainly hope so.

    London Bridge to Vauxhall are a ways away if I'm not mistaken. If this an organized attack they're clever. Sounds like they're trying to make the police run around.

    But let's not jump to conclusions.

    It would be wise to cancel the Grande benefit concert. It's too big of a target for these monsters.

    When the geniuses in power finally realize that there's pretty strong correlation between Islam and terrorism instead of burying their heads in the sand, and passing absurd "hate speech" laws to lock up people for stating the obvious? In other words, never.

    Why do they have to keep experiencing these atrocities, exactly?
