Bali Bombing Memorial for Central London

Prince Charles to Inaugurate Monument for Victims of 2002 Terror Attack.

(9/2/2006) Britain's Prince of Wales will preside over a ceremony in central London on October 12, 2006, to mark the 4th anniversary of the tragic Bali terrorist attack that claimed 202 lives, 28 of which were British subjects.

The ceremony will mark the unveiling of memorial sculpture located on Clive Steps, near St. James' Park, built in the form of a marble globe surrounded by 202 carved doves one for each of the victims of the blast.

The monument represents the culmination of efforts by the UK Bali Bombing Victims Group who have lobbied the UK Government for a fitting tribute to those who died in Bali. Quoted by the BBC, a spokesperson for the group said, "This is a significant moment for all those affected by the bombings and in particular those who lost loved ones in this terrible outrage."

Families and relatives of the victims together with those who survived the bombing are expected to attend the memorial's unveiling.
