The decision, announced in the House of Commons by Transport Secretary Cecil Parkinson, cast doubt on whether such a link would be built in Britain. One is being built in France. Parkinson said the link's builders, European Rail Link, have declined to proceed without public funds.

The British capital was plunged into chaos Monday after a bomb threat and subsequent explosion caused authorities to shut all commuter railway stations, a disruption that officials estimated would cost recession-hit businesses here more than $80 million. An estimated 250,000 commuters were unable to get into the city Monday after a bomb went off about 6 a.m. on the tracks near Clapham Junction station, the city's busiest rail intersection.

Army bomb disposal experts defused a 1,500-pound IRA bomb planted near a British military base in Northern Ireland, police said. It took nearly 12 hours to defuse the bomb, which was in a stolen van near the base in Castlederg, near the western border with the Irish Republic. "There's no doubt that it was the IRA," a police spokesman said of the outlawed Irish Republican Army, which is seeking to drive the British out of Northern Ireland.
