A woman was taken to hospital with minor injuries after a letter bomb exploded at an office in central London.
Scotland Yard’s anti-terrorism unit was investigating the “small explosion” at a business address in Victoria Street less than a mile from the Houses of Parliament.
In its characteristic state of denial, the BBC’s anchorwoman, Martina Hingis, declared “there is no reason to believe the attack is related to terrorism.”
The way I see it, any letter bomb is a terrorist act, whether it is for individual reasons or for the reasons of a group.
Update The gay news website Pink News has more details:
What is thought to be a letter bomb detonated in the Capita building near well-known gay venue The Stag in Victoria.
Capita runs the Criminal Records Bureau for the government and manages the London Congestion Charge, as well as providing a range of IT and personnel services to public bodies like the BBC.
It is a FTSE 100 company with over 30,000 employees.
