Plans have been announced to erect a permanent memorial in St. James Park in London for those who died in the October 12, 2002, bomb blast at a Bali nightspot.
The memorial, in the form of a 5 foot globe with 202 engraved doves – one for each of the victims – will commemorate the those of 21 countries who died in the terrorist attack. 26 Britons were among the 202 who perished – the third largest national grouping after the 88 Australians and 38 Indonesians who also died. The monument, scheduled for completion before the 3rd anniversary of the event, will also bear a plaque with the names and ages of all 202 victims.
Susanna Miller, the spokeswoman for the UK Bali Bombing Victims Group told the press that the memorial would serve both as a "tribute to those we have lost and a warning to governments and the wider world community."
