London Returns To Normal Life

11 July 2005 (RFE/RL) -- Police have told Londoners to go back to work on 11 July.

Deputy Chief Constable Andy Trotter said the city must return to normal activity, otherwise the terrorists will have achieved their goals.

Bombs exploded on three underground trains around the city and a bus on 7 July, killing 49 people and wounding some 700 more.

Searching for clues, police yesterday appealed to the public to e-mail any photos, videos, or images from camera-equipped mobile phones they took in the vicinity of the four blasts.

Britain remains on high alert, and authorities detained three people under antiterrorism laws at Heathrow Airport on 10 July. However, they were later released without charge.
