This morning the English city of London was rocked by explosions which destroyed a double decker bus and affected their subway system. About 700 people were hurt and 37 people were killed.

President Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair made comments on these events. Have a look at these comments by the Mayor of London Ken Livingstone:

LIVINGSTONE: I wish to speak to you, directly to those who came to London today to take life. I know that you personally do not fear to give your own life in exchange for taking others, is why you are so dangerous. But I know you do fear that you may fail in your long term objective to destroy our free society. And I can show why you will fail. In the days that follow, look at our airports, look at our seaports, and look at our railway stations, and even after your cowardly attack you will see that people from the rest of Britain, people from around the world, will arrive in London to become Londoners and to fulfill their dreams and achieve their potential. They choose to come to London, as so many have come before, because they come to be free, they come to live the life they choose, they come to be able to feed themselves. They flee you because you tell them how they should live. They don't want that. And nothing you do, however many of us you kill, will stop that flight to our cities, where freedom is strong, and where people can live in harmony with one another. Whatever you do, however many you kill, you will fail.
