London Remembers 7/7 Victims on Sixth Anniversary of Attacks

Dan Kitwood/Getty Images(LONDON) -- People will gather in London's Hyde Park on Thursday to honor and remember the victims of the 7/7 attacks that took place exactly six years ago.

The July 7, 2005 incident claimed the lives of 52 people and injured several hundreds more.  Terrorists detonated a total of four bombs in London that morning -- three on the Underground train network and another on a bus passing through Tavistock Square.

Four years after the attacks, the memorial at Hyde Park was built, featuring a steel pillar for each of the 52 people that died.

Thursday's remembrance of 7/7 comes amid allegations that reporters and investigators for Rupert Murdoch's News of the World  hacked into the cellphones of the victims’ families.  Scotland Yard is leading the investigation and has started to contact relatives of the 7/7 victims.

It is not yet known whether any of those phones had actually been hacked.
