    Just awoke to lots of news! One suicide bomber dead, mosque in East London surrounded. No details on the mosque yet, but both CNN and FOX reporting:

    Also the house from one of the suicide bombers on 7/7 has been firebombed a few hours ago in Leeds.

    I knew that, about Wales. Not thinking, dang TV awoke me with an 'alert.' I probably will go back and see what is cooking on news in a few, still nothing on net about the mosque.

    I thought they were still going through those houses, perhaps just the one they thought a 'bomb factory?' I hope no one was hurt.

    I dont know if anybody was hurt, events in London this morning have put the story on the back burner so i havent heard anymore.They are saying the area in Leeds that the bombers came from is like a powder keg at the moment.

    Considering what's been going on, I can understand why. I'm going to check what I can find, then go back to telly. Glad you are safe. ;) Well relatively speaking, as are we all.

    From sky teletext -

    An area around the home of suicide bomber Germaine Lindsay has been sealed off after an arson attack.
    Thames valley Police said they were called to the house in Aylesbury,Bucks (sorry not Leeds), shortly after 6:30am after reports of a strong smell of petrol.
    Lindsay,19, blew himself up on a Piccadilly Line train on July 7, killing 26 people in the most deadly of the four terrorist attacks that day.
    His wife, Samantha Lewthwaite, who is currently staying at the house, has condemned her husband's attack as "horrific".
