Traders work on the main trading floor of the New York Stock Exchange July 7, 2005. Stocks were broadly lower in early trading Thursday after terrorist attacks rocked London's subway system and buses earlier in the day.
NPR's Lynn Neary reports on the impact the London bombings had on the world's financial markets. The attacks came just as the European markets began trading.
The news immediately sent London's FTSE index down by 4 percent. It has since recovered about half of those early losses. The German and French Indexes were also down by similar amounts. The U.S. stock market averages are also down.
