WE WILL NOT FORGET YOU


The UK paid tribute to the victims of the 7 July London attacks, one year after suicide bombers killed 52 people and injured nearly 800.

Cathedral bells have tolled, flowers have been laid near the blast scenes and at noon the country fell silent for two minutes to remember the victims.

The day culminated in a service of remembrance at London's Regent's Park. Prime Minister Tony Blair said the anniversary was an opportunity for "the whole nation to come together".

He said it was a chance "to offer comfort and support to those who lost loved ones or were injured on that terrible day".

The Regent's Park service included readings and songs dedicated to those who died in the attacks on three underground trains and a bus.

Poems were read by family members of those who died. Families all over the world also joined in this rememberance service for their lost ones. Meanwhile, Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair warned London must expect another attack. "I know there will be further attacks, but as to whether we will stop those, well we've stopped three already," Sir Ian told BBC News.
