How do London's young Muslims view the 7/7 attacks?
by Sitala Peek
On 7 July 2005 four suicide bombers killed 52 people and injured hundreds more in attacks on London's transport system. Ten years on, Muslim teenagers from Tower Hamlets describe what the attacks mean to them and how they view modern extremist threats.
Jakiya is a conscientious 17-year-old pupil, at a local girls' school in Shadwell, east London, who chats animatedly about her exams.
