Britons Mark The 10th Anniversary Of London Transit Attacks
Britons are marking the 10th anniversary of suicide bomb attacks on London’s transit system that killed 52 commuters.
People paused in silence today and walked in solidarity. Prime Minister David Cameron and London Mayor Boris Johnson led a wreath-laying ceremony at a memorial in London’s Hyde Park.
It was July 7, 2005 that four British men inspired by al-Qaida blew themselves up on three London subway trains and a bus during the morning rush hour.
The attacks also wounded more than 700 people.
