Muhammad Siddique Khan, 30, said in English in a tape aired on Aljazeera on Thursday he and thousands of others were committed to defending Islam against violence by democratically elected governments.
The attacks caused the biggest peacetime loss of life in Britain since the Second World War.
Beverli Rhodes, 46, was on one of the trains when a bomb exploded. She was thrown against a metal pole and suffered brain damage. She says she’s still haunted by the bombings.
“I [still] won’t go on the underground,” she said.
“It’s amazing that it was two years ago,” John Salding, 63, whose girlfriend was amongst those killed, said.
“My memories are all so fresh.”
