Long Description:
Wikipedia has this to say about the attacks at this, the Russell Square Underground Station:
(visit link) :

"At 08:56 BST a bomb detonated on a Piccadilly Line train between King's Cross and Russell Square. Twenty-one are dead; it is believed more bodies remain in the tunnel, which is one of the deepest on the Underground network."
Five minutes earlier, another bomb went off on the Circle Line near Liverpool Street. At 9:17, another bomb exploded on the Circle Line train between Edgware Road Station and Paddington. Thirty minutes later a bus was bombed.

This Mail Online article (visit link) from four years after the attacks has additional photos of the forensics team at the Russell Square Station as well as a discussion of the bombings.
