bombers' reports New Zealander
A NEW Zealander working for
Reuters in London says two colleagues witnessed the
unconfirmed shooting by police of two apparent
suicide bombers outside the HSBC tower at Canary
Wharf in London.
The New Zealander, who did not want to be named,
said the killing of the two men wearing bombs
happened at 10.30 am on Thursday (London time).
Following the shooting, the 8,000 workers in the
44-storey tower were told to stay away from windows
and remain in the building for at least six hours,
the New Zealand man said.
He was not prepared to
give the names of his two English colleagues,
who he said witnessed the shooting from a
building across the road from the tower.
Reports of attacks carried out by suicide
bombers have been rife in London.
Canada's Globe & Mail newspaper
reported an unconfirmed incident of police shooting
a bomber outside the HSBC tower.
Canadian Brendan Spinks, who works on the
18th floor of the tower, said he saw a "massive
rush of policemen" outside the building after
London was rocked by the bombings.
