Bomb Scare In Britain

LONDON (AP) - There are reports that bombers intended to set off a bomb remotely in London's bustling theater district.

Sky News T-V, citing sources, says authorities think bombers intended to use a cell phone.

Authorities say the bomb was defused after an ambulance crew spotted smoke coming from a Mercedes filled with a lethal mix of gasoline, propane and nails.

New York Republican Congressman Peter King, who has been briefed on the investigation, says a cell phone was found and was going to be used to detonate the bomb.

Police say the bomb near Piccadilly Circus was powerful enough to have caused "significant injury or loss of life" and could
have possibly killed hundreds.
