    Sorry but far far from all such incidents are terror related but it seems to be the go to explanation for American media for all acts of violence... like they are wanting it to be terror rather than an accident. That is pathetic.
    Spare me.

    The Met told the BBC there was no suggestion the incident was linked to terrorism.

    Witnesses reported hearing a loud explosion. Matt Harverson told Sky News he initially thought it was a terrorist attack. Police confirmed it was not a terrorist incident.

    Police said there was nothing to indicate that the crash was linked to a terrorist attack on London. In 2005, 52 commuters were killed in rush hour suicide bombings.

    The news agencies are being accurate and making sure that people know what did and didn't happen. It's responsible journalism and nobody should expect them to do otherwise.

    The statement that it wasn't a terrorist attack was originally made by both the police and MET office.

    Seeing as MSNBC has been referred to as MSDNC (Microsoft + Democratic National Committee) because they have been so positively biased in their favorable coverage of the President, Democrat politicians and liberal/leftist causes, issues, policies and celebs, it's unlikely they'd match your stereotypical profile of a broadcast network that would speak to the stereotypical "Islamophobe" who sees/suspects Muslims under the bed.


    Everyone in America knows that MSNBC is THE Leftist's mouthpiece. That you don't know this makes you stand alone in a spotlight of attention.

    Where are you from, son?

    Well, I KNOW you're in Spain, but the same goes for you as for the poster above. Try stcking to your own geography if you are going to try to spread misinformation and/or perpetuate false stereotypes.

    playing coy about the obvious is rather sad.

    Re: 2 killed as helicopter crashes into crane in central London

    One of my best friends lives in a block of flats 100m from the site of the accident and saw the whole thing. He was interviewed repeatedly on the BBC yesterday morning. He said that it was very clear that the copter just flew into the crane. The fog was fairly thick at the moment of impact, but cleared quite quickly. He saw the copter plunge to the ground between the road and the railway track and burst into flame. No one suggested terrorist action and it was pretty clear from the first moment that it was an accident. No idea why a helicopter was flying through thick fog at dawn above rush hour London. There will be inquiries.
