With news of an attack on London’s transportation system, we talk with reporters on the streets and terrorism experts about what is known about bombings.

As of 9:30 a.m. (ET) the BBC reports 10 dead at one bomb scene and at least 150 injured across the city in the series of bomb blasts. BBC correspondents report that London is eerily quiet with the public transport systems closed down, with people jamming cell phone systems with calls and many wondering how they will get home.
