Transcript Story by Jenna McManus ondon streets and subway lines proved the target of coordinated bombings in July 2005. Within seconds, more than 700 Londoners were wounded. haos and terror bore down on the streets of London the morning of July 7, 2005 as four bombs detonated on three underground trains and a double-decker bus. The following day a massive manhunt was initiated. Prime Minister Tony Blair said the attacks had "all the hallmarks of al Qaeda!' London Mayor Ken Livingstone said the attack was not related to Britain's participation in the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. He described London as a symbol of the lifestyle terrorists despise, particularly its multicultural heritage. The attacks killed 52 commuters and the four bombers, several others were injured. Half of the 700 who were wounded were treated on the scene; the rest were taken to hospitals. Queen Elizabeth II visited some of the wounded at Royal London Hospital. She said the terrorists will not change their way of life. Following the attacks Londoner Raj Varatharaj was back at the underground stations. "I was scared, but what can you do? This is the fastest way for me to get to work. You just have to carry on" he told reporters. Five days after the initial attacks, 12 unexploded bombs were found in a car parked at Luton train station. Initially police said the car was believed to be linked to the July 7 bombing. The bombs used in the attacks held less than 10 pounds of explosives each, which is light enough to easily be carried in a bag or knapsack, police said. Metropolitan Police Commissioner Ian Blair said the July 21 bombs, which failed to explode, were just as powerful as the July 7 ones, but there was "no direct link at the moment" between the two groups of attackers. The July 7 bombings were carried out by three British-born Muslims of Pakistani heritage who came from the city of Leeds, about a three hour drive north of London, and a forth British citizen, a Muslim convert of Jamaican birth who lived closer to London. "We speak today in the shadow of terrorism, but it will not obscure what we came here to achieve" Tony Blair said after the attack. (If) 184
