Britain Marks 10 Year Anniversary of the 7/7 Terrorist Attacks

Today marks the tenth anniversary of the 7/7 bombings in London that killed 52 people and injured hundreds. The bombings, a coordinated suicide bombing attack on London's bus and subway system, were carried out by al-Qaeda the day after the city was awarded the bid for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games.

The United Kingdom marked the anniversary with a minute's silence at 11:30 A.M. this morning, as well as various ceremonies throughout the day.

From The Guardian:

Survivors, the bereaved, royalty, politicians and religious leaders came together to mark the 10th anniversary of the 7/7 bombings.

On tube station platforms, under cloudy skies in Hyde Park and beneath the decorated dome of St Paul’s Cathedral, they paid their respects to the 52 innocent victims of the devastating terrorist attack a decade ago.

A minute of silence was observed nationwide, prayers and hymns were heard at St Paul’s and later in the day, a less formal memorial took place at Hyde Park, where a rock choir sang and Prince William laid a wreath.

Tube trains and buses stopped as the silence was observed, while tennis was delayed at Wimbledon.
