Two minutes silence for 7/7 bombings

Millions will today mark a two-minute silence to commemorate the first anniversary of the July 7 London bombings.

Bereaved relatives of the 52 innocent victims and survivors of the blasts will try not to let a new suicide video from one of the bombers overshadow the day, for which a series of commemorative events has been organised.

There will be tight security across the capital, with extra officers drafted in amid fears that terrorist plotters could try to exploit the symbolism of the day by mounting another attack.
