7/7 London Bombings Memorial - Remembering The Tragedy
It's been 4 years now since that fateful 7th of July in 2005 when a series of coordinated suicide bomb attacks on London's public transport system during the morning rush hour shook the life out of the great city of London. These bombings (also known as the 7/7 bombings) were reported to be carried out in response to Britain's involvement in the war on Iraq.
Here's offering prayers for the souls that departed for their heavenly abode on that fateful day. May all of them Rest In Peace forever.
Prince Charles has paid tribute to the families who lost loved ones in the 7 July 2005 London bombings, at a memorial in Hyde Park.
He said that their bravery "offered us hope for the future".
Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Minister for London Tessa Jowell joined the Prince of Wales at the unveiling of the 52 steel pillars.
Fifty-two people died after suicide bombers detonated explosives on board three Underground trains and a bus.
The victims' relatives at the unveiling said the permanent memorial, between the park's Lover's Walk and Park Lane, was a "fitting tribute".
Architects Carmody Groarke said the 3.5m (11.5ft) tall stainless steel pillars should convey the random nature of the loss of life - how it could have been anyone travelling in London that day.
