A third Jewish fatality of the London terror bombings was confirmed by police. Anat Rosenberg, 37, an Israeli who had lived in London for nearly 20 years, was on the bus destroyed in one of the four suicide bombings that hit the British capital July 7. Rosenberg had not visited Israel in the past four years due to her fear of terrorism.

Britain’s Orthodox chief rabbi told thousands of mourners at a vigil for terror victims that shared grief had turned London’s many faiths into one community. Paying tribute to the three known Jewish fatalities in the July 7 bombings, Sir Jonathan Sacks told the masses gathered in Trafalgar Square on Thursday that Londoners would unite in the face of terrorism.
