Who's next?

Madrid, London -- who's next?

Might Warsaw be on that list?

Or is it just insignificant and poor enough to be counted out of the terrorists' plans?

We have only one subway line, and it doesn't carry that many people.

There are lots on the busses and trams though.

As a reaction to the London bombings Polish authorities announced a state of increased alert. Additional police patrols appeared in the Warsaw underground, at the domestic airports, railway and bus stations, shopping malls and near the foreign embassies. However, the Deputy Prime Minister Izabela Jaruga-Nowacka declared at a special news conference that "the threat of terrorist attacks in Poland have not increased," while President Aleksander Kwaśniewski declared: "I believe we are safe in Poland. All our security systems are operating and everyone is on alert." There were no reports of any Polish casualties so far but it is known that at least one Pole was injured. The terrorist attacks caused some panic on the Warsaw bourse in the first half of the day with the blue chip index falling by 3%. Later on the situation calmed down a bit and the index finally closed at a level 1.4% lower than on the previous day.
