Bombs in Ukraine. No worries say UEFA

We're all off (I'm not) to Ukraine this summer for the big football festival, tournament thing that's happening. A few bombs exploded in the city of Dnipropetrovsk but UEFA said don't panic, there's nothing to see here.


That's the police inspecting the damage done by the world's smallest explosion. I think it must have been one of those "bangers" that you buy from toy shops, you know the little white things that you throw at people? Four bombs went off and at least 27 people were injured in the blasts. At least 27? Maybe they just got to 27 and couldn't be arsed counting any more.

The good news is Dnipropetrovsk  is not host city. It was initially going to be one but was replaced in 2009, presumably because of things like this. Tram stops and a railway station were the targets because terrorists really hate public transport. Nobody died.

UEFA have said they don't foresee any problems and the attacks were just one of those unfortunate things that happen. Like when your cat shits on the kitchen floor or pisses in the fire place - every week. Thank God England will be playing 130 miles away in Donetsk. If John Terry or Ashley Cole got hurt I don't know what I'd do.  I imagine there would be alcohol involved. Celebrating or commiserating? You decide.
