Prime Minister Tony Blair said Thursday he hoped that London would return to normal "as soon as possible" after explosions struck three Underground stations and a bus at midday.

"We can’t minimize incidents such as this," Blair said during a news conference with visiting Australian Prime Minister John Howard. "They’re done to scare people, to frighten them and make them worried."

One injury was reported in the Thursday attacks.
