    A new London exhibition about art since 9/11 that begins with images of the devastated Twin Towers in New York opens in London on Thursday.

    It is Britain's first major exhibition that is looking at artists' response to war and conflict since the attacks on September 11, 2001, and the US launched its so-called 'global war on terror'.

    Al Jazeera's Jessica Baldwin reports from London.
