In a surprise development...

Suspected bomb defused in London -
LONDON, England (Reuters) -- British police say they have defused a bomb in central London. Explosives officers were called to examine a car parked in The Haymarket, a busy street in the heart of central London's theatre district, early on Friday morning, London police said in a statement. "They discovered what appeared to be a potentially viable explosive device. This was made safe," they said, adding that counter-terrorism officers were investigating.

CNN Japan has been running this non-stop at the same importance level as Paris Hilton going to jail. The BBC has been showing their golf and soccer scores. Something's askew when you get constant coverage of this on the American channel and the people near it are more concerned about the sports highlights.
Maybe it's got to do with this:

Government figures 'missing' two million violent crimes - Independent Online Edition > Crime
An extra two million violent crimes a year are committed in Britain than previously thought because of a bizarre distortion in the Government's flagship crime figures, it was claimed yesterday.

A former Home Office research expert said that across all types of crime, three million offences a year are excluded from the British Crime Survey (BCS).

The poll caps the number of times a victim can be targeted by an offender at five incidents a year.
