in memoriam 07.07.05
four explosions ripped across central london thursday, killing more than fifty people and injuring seven hundred.
in what appears to have been a co-ordinated attack, there were blasts on three underground trains and a bus, as the morning's rush hour drew to a close. the capital's public transport system was halted and a high-level emergency procedure swung into action. all hospitals were full by mid-morning.
the first explosion happened on an underground train just outside the busy Liverpool Street station.
further blasts hit a train heading from Russell Square station to King's Cross and another at edgware road station. the final explosion ripped through a double-decker bus outside the British Medical Association, while travelling from Hackney to Marble Arch and following a diversion from its normal route.
