UK Campaigners Trying To Get Modern Warfare 3 Banned

A story published by a newspaper has claimed that campaigners are trying to get Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 banned in the UK for allegedly mimicking the 7/7 terrorist attack in London.

The Daily Mail claims that the MW3 trailer released by Activision yesterday shows scenes which echo the devastating 7/7 bombings in London, in which 52 people had lost their lives.

The paper said that supporters of the people affected by the terrorist attack in London have expressed ‘fury’ over the similarities and are campaigning to get it banned.

“An ultra-violent computer game which features explosions and scenes of destruction on the London Tube and at the Houses of Parliament is to be released later this year,” the newspaper describes the game.

The MW3 trailer shows scenes of World War 3 in major world cities including New York, London and Paris. In the trailer, a devastated London is shown with soldiers running around with guns and bombs exploding.

In what the Daily Mail describes as a recreation of the 7/7 attack on the London Tube, a solder in a truck is chasing a train, which later derails and explodes.
