EU To Remember London Victims
14 July 2005 (RFE/RL) -- Two minutes of silence are due to be held at midday today London time across the 25-country European Union to remember the victims of the London terror bombings one week ago.
In a joint declaration on 12 July after an emergency meeting in Brussels, EU interior and justice ministers said they stood in solidarity with Britain and vowed to implement new anti-terrorism measures across the bloc.
British police are now targeting their investigation toward catching the mastermind behind the attacks, which are suspected of being carried out by British-born men of ethnic Pakistani background. Police are investigating the possibility that the four bombers died in the blasts.
Anti-terror police late on 12 July carried out a new raid in connection with the investigation, searching a residence in Aylesbury northwest of London. No arrests were reported.
