Family marks 10 years since death

Relatives of a Brazilian man shot by British police who mistook him for a suicide bomber in the tense aftermath of the London subway bombings have marked his death 10 years ago.

Family and supporters are still trying to hold British police to account for the July 22, 2005 killing of Jean Charles de Menezes, who was shot dead in front of commuters as he tried to board a train.

Police thought he was a suicide bomber targeting the subway, two weeks after bombers attacking London public transport killed 52.
