Britain observed a moment of silence today, marking the 10th anniversary of the London terror bombings that killed 52 people and injured hundreds.

On July 7, 2005, four suicide bombers linked to al-Qaeda detonated explosives aboard three London Underground trains across the city and on a bus.

Londoners joined together on Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. to reflect on the anniversary in a moment of silence. According to the New York Times, commemorations on Tuesday included a wreath laying ceremony at the Hyde Park Memorial and a memorial service at St. Paul's Cathedral.
