A festive occasion
The UK Daily Mail reports that one of the London suicide bomber's families is marking the third anniversary of his atrocity with a celebration:
"A party is being held at the grave of a 7/7 bomber in what is being seen as an insult to the 52 London commuters murdered three years ago today.
"The family of Shehzad Tanweer and 400 guests will 'celebrate his life' and 'remember him as a martyr' at a village in Pakistan.
"Tanweer, 22, along with Mohammad Sidique Khan, 30, Hasib Hussain, 18, and 19-year-old Jermaine Lindsay, died when they detonated rucksack bombs on three crowded Tube trains and a No.30 bus."
MP Andrew Dismore assured the Mail that "Most Muslims would be absolutely horrified, as I am, that Shehzad Tanweer is being remembered by some people as a martyr."
