The 7 July 2005 London bombings, also known as 7/7, were a series of coordinated suicide attacks on London’s public transport system during the morning rush hour. The bombings were carried out by three Muslim Pakistani British men and one British citizen of Jamaican descent who had converted to Islam, all of whom were motivated by Britain’s involvement in the Iraq War.
There are various conspiracy theories about the bombings, including the suggestion that the bombers were ‘patsies’, based on claims about timings of the underground trains and the train from Luton, supposed explosions under the carriages, and allegations of the faking of a photograph of the bombers. A survey of 500 British Muslims by Channel 4 News found that 24% believed that the four men blamed for the attacks did not carry them out.
The various theories about the 7/7 attacks including the claims made in the amateur conspiracy film 7/7 Ripple Effect were examined by the BBC documentary series The Conspiracy Files, in an episode titled 7/7 first broadcast on 30 June 2009. It raised concerns about some of the claims, and their authorship.
