Two bombing attempts in London failed last night. A Mercedes was parked in front of a popular nightclub before closing time. There were at least 500 patrons inside the club. The Mercedes contained 11 full gasoline cans and 7 containers of nails. Apparently, the car was to be exploded by a call from a cell phone, but someone, or something, goofed. The cell phone call didn’t trigger the explosion. Instead, some smoke started spewing out of the car.

An ambulance happened to drive by. The driver, seeing the smoke, called the police. The police arrived quickly, and a bomb expert immediately entered the car and started disarming the vehicle. A few minutes later, the police were notified about another car, also full of explosive material, parked behind the nightclub. That vehicle was also disarmed. Twice in one night, deadly explosions had failed to occur. The bad guys had lost--this time.

A new prime minister had just taken over in England. He said that God was watching over London. Scotland Yard believed that terrorists were behind the bombing attempts. When one patron at the nightclub found out how close he had been to death, he said, “I’m so happy to be alive! Last night I was dancing all night near the windows next to the street, and I would have been one of the first to die. It’s scary to think about. I won’t be coming to this club for another week or so.”

Chúng ta đã có thể chết hết rồi

Hai vụ đặt bom diễn ra ở London tối qua. Một chiếc Mercedes đậu trước một hộp đêm nổi tiếng trước giờ đóng cửa. Có ít nhất 500 người ở trong đó. Chiếc Mercedes chứa 11 can xăng và 7 thùng chứa đinh. Hình như chiếc xe được kích nổ bằng một cuộc gọi từ một cái điện thoại di động, nhưng tai đó, hoặc là một cái gì đó, đã bỏ lỡ. Cuộc gọi điện thoại không gây ra vụ nổ. Thay vào đó, vài làm khói bắt đầu lan ra ngoài đường.

Một chiếc xe cứu thương xuất hiện. Người tài xe, thấy khói, gọi cho cảnh sát. Cảnh sát tới ngay tức khắc, và một chuyên gia về bom đã ngay lập tức tiến vào chiếc xe và bắt đầu vô hiệu hóa cái phương tiện. Một vài phút sau, cảnh sát được thông báo về một chiếc xe khác, cũng chứa đầy những chất gây nổ, đậu phía sau hộp đêm. Cái phương tiện đó cũng bị vô hiệu hóa. Hai lần trong đêm, những vụ nổ gây chết người đã thất bại. Những kẻ xấu đã mất dạng-vào thời điểm này.

Một bộ trưởng mới vừa nắm quyền ở Anh. Ông ta nói rằng Chúa đang dõi theo London. Sở Chi Huy cảnh sát London tin rằng những kẻ khủng bố đứng đằng sau những vụ đặt bom này. Khi một người tại hộp đêm nhận ra mình đã gần tử thần như thế nào, anh ta nói, "Tôi rất vui vì vẫn còn sống! Tối qua tôi nhảy suốt đêm gần cửa sổ kế bên đường, và tôi sẽ là một trong số những người chết trước tiên. Thật là đáng sợ khi nghĩ về nó. Tôi sẽ không tới hộp đêm này một vài tuần nữa."

Hai mưu toan đánh bom tại Luân đôn đã bị triệt phá tối hôm qua. Một chiếc Mercedes đã được cho đậu ở phía trước một hộp đêm nổi tiếng trước giờ đóng cửa. Có ít nhất 500 khách hàng bên trong hộp đêm. Chiếc xe Mercedse chở 11 can xăng đầy và 7 thùng đinh. Hình như, chiếc xe được tính cho nổ tung bởi một cuộc điện thoại từ một điện thoại di động, nhưng có ai đó, hoặc có chuyện gì đó lầm lẫn. Cái điện thoại di động đã không gây ra được vụ nổ. Thay vì thế, từng làn khói bắt đầu tuôn ra mù mịt từ chiếc xe.

Một chiếc xe cấp cứu ngẫu nhiên chạy ngang qua. Bác tài xế, trông thấy khói, đã gọi cho cảnh sát. Cảnh sát có mặt nhanh chóng, và một chuyên gia về bom ngay lập tức vào xe và bắt đầu vô hiệu hoá phương tiện. Ít phút sau đó, cảnh sát được thông báo có thêm một chiếc xe nữa, cũng chứa đầy vật liệu gây nổ, được cho đậu phía sau hộp đêm. Các phương tiện cũng được vô hiệu hoá. Hai lần trong một đêm, các vụ nổ gây chết người đã bị triệt phá khi tìm thấy. Những kẻ xấu đã biến mất--tại thời điểm này.

Vị thủ tướng mới nhậm chức ở nước Anh. Ông nói rằng Thượng đế đã bảo vệ Luân đôn. Sở cảnh sát Luân đôn tin rằng những kẻ khủng bố đã đứng sau các vụ mưu toan đánh bom. Khi một khách hàng tại hộp đêm phát hiện ra sao anh ta lại ở gần cái chết đến như thế, anh nói, "Tôi thật hạnh phúc khi vẫn còn sống! Tối qua tôi đã khiêu vũ suốt đêm cạnh cửa sổ gần sát con đường và tôi sẽ là một trong những người chết đầu tiên. Thật kinh sợ khi nghĩ về chuyện đó. Tôi sẽ không đến hộp đêm này trong một vài tuần hoặc hơn thế nữa."
