South Africans in London

There are said to be something like a million South Africans who live in the UK, I think around 200 000 or so as a very rough estimate in the London area. So far no reports of South African casualties. The Mail & Guardian has a round-up of eyewitness reports from South Africans in London. From Vanessa Haupt:

"People are scared, as we don't know what is happening. The news on the radio has just confirmed that explosive devices have been found and there is an unconfirmed number of deaths and hundreds of injuries. "Certain areas in central London have been evacuated and the entire Tube network and zone-one buses have been shut down. We've all been advised to stay in our buildings and most of us don't even know how we're going to get home tonight."
