BRITAIN MARKS 10 YEARS SINCE 7/7 BOMBINGS

On 7th July 2015, Britain took a minute’s silence at 11.30am to mark the 10th anniversary of atrocity in which 52 people were murdered and hundreds more injured when four suicide bombers attacked London’s transport network.

The names of all of those who died were also read out in St Paul’s Cathedral before the minute’s silence was observed. 

10 years ago today, twenty-six died in the bombing at Russell Square on the Piccadilly line, six in the bombing at Edgware Road on the Circle Line, seven in the bombing at Aldgate on the Circle Line and 13 in the bombing on the number 30 bus at Tavistock Square. Hundreds more were injured.
