Britain commemorates 7/7 anniversary

Britain is commemorating two years since the July 2005 terror attacks on London's transport system, which killed 52 people. It comes just days after another series of bombing attempts in the United Kingdom.

Two men crashed a gas-laden Jeep Cherokee into the main terminal of Glasgow airport, causing it to explode. The Jeep smashed into the airport security barriers without injuring anyone.

Another attempted terror attack took place in the country's capital, where two cars packed with gas cylinders and nails were discovered in the centre of London.

These incidents caused the UK authorities to declare a 'critical' terror alert, before lowering it to 'severe' after the capture of eight people, all allegedly connected with the failed bombings.
