London Bombings, Transit Safety and International Terror

Hosted by
British police killed a man in a London subway today and released closed-circuit TV pictures of four suspects in yesterday's aborted bombings. President Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair have insisted that terrorists are motivated not by their policies, but by an ideology of hatred against the western lifestyle and values. Though the Independent says senior ministers have dismissed the Iraq connection by disparaging their critics, the London paper now says that "an authoritative report from the much-respected think-tank Chatham House is not so easily swept to one side."

We hear from journalists, Muslims, and experts in transit and security.
