On July 7th 2005 a terrible event occurred in London. A series of four explosions took place and took the lives of 52 innocent people and four suicide bombers. The attacks which also injured over 700 others targeted civilians using the public transport system during rush hour.
On the morning of Thursday, 7 July 2005, four Islamist extremists separately detonated three bombs in quick succession aboard London Underground trains across the city and, later, a fourth on a double-decker bus in Tavistock Square. Fifty-two people were killed and over 700 more were injured in the attacks, making it Britain’s worst terrorist incident since the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, as well as the country’s first ever Islamist suicide attack.
