LONDON - In a London park stands a new forest of steel pillars - each representing a victim of the July 7, 2005, attacks on the British capital's transit system.

Britain is unveiling the new memorial Tuesday, the fourth anniversary of the morning attacks when four suicide bombers killed 52 others and injured hundreds more by blowing up three subway trains and a bus.

The monument is made up of 52 unique stainless steel columns standing 3.5 meters (11.5 feet) tall in Hyde Park.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown, London Mayor Boris Johnson and the Prince of Wales and his wife the Duchess of Cornwall are to attend the memorial service along with families of the victims.

Prince Charles' office says he will lay a wreath and meet survivors after the ceremony.
