No KU students in London during today’s explosions

July 21, 2005


A Kansas University official said today that no students or faculty connected to the Office of Study Abroad program were today in London, where four explosions rocked the city at midday, just two weeks after 56 people were killed in terrorist bombings.

Most, or all of the 47 KU students and faculty who were in Britain July 7 when the suicide bombers struck have returned home, said Todd Cohen, a KU spokesman.

"The programs are all wrapped up, is what I'm told," Cohen said. "There might be some stragglers doing some time on their own, but all the programs are back."

At midday today, four explosions struck the London Underground and a bus. Only one person was reported injured in the nearly simultaneous lunch-hour blasts, British Transport Police said.

Not true. My fiance is still there, I couldn't hear her on the phone for all of the sirens on the street.
