7/7/05 London bombing


Recommended Posts



Four suicide bombers struck in central London on Thursday 7 July, killing 52 people and injuring more than 770.


The co-ordinated attacks hit the transport system as the morning rush hour drew to a close.


Three bombs went off at or around 0850 BST on underground trains just outside Liverpool Street and Edgware Road stations, and on another travelling between King's Cross and Russell Square.


The final explosion was around an hour later on a double-decker bus in Tavistock Square, not far from King's Cross.

7/7 memorial defaced on anniversary of 2005 attacks with ‘Blair lied thousands died’ graffiti

Apparently pre-planned vandalism carried out at site where memorial service will be held with families of victims later today

The memorial to the 52 victims of the 7 July London bombings has been defaced by vandals on the anniversary of the attack nine years ago today.

Police had cordoned off the installation this morning as contractors were called in to clean the 52 pillars, one for each of the people killed.

A memorial service is due to take place at the site in Hyde Park later today, and this week political party leaders have been paying tribute to the "indomitable" spirit of London that was shown in the face of what was then its worst attack for more than 15 years.

According to reports this morning from London Live, the messages sprayed in red and black onto the memorial included the words "Blair lied thousands died", "Four innocent Muslims" and "July 7 truth".
