UK will not appeal bombings inquest ruling
London: The British government says it won`t try to overturn a court ruling that victims` relatives should be allowed to hear evidence from the intelligence services on the 2005 bombings on London`s transit system.
Home Secretary Theresa May and the MI5 spy agency had argued that such evidence should be disclosed only in closed session hearings into the July 07, 2005 suicide attacks, which killed 52 commuters.
Presiding judge Heather Hallett said victims` families and a small number of other interested parties should be allowed to attend.
An appeals court agreed that the families could not be excluded.
The Home Office said yesterday that it would not appeal the ruling and would now "explore a range of options" with Hallett about protecting national security.
