The mothers of two teenagers, who were stabbed to death in London, have been marking the final day of a special peace campaign centred on the London Olympics.
The 100 Days Of Peace initiative aimed to promote one hundred days of peace-making for fifty days on either side of the Games. It mirrored the ancient tradition of instigating a truce during the original Games in Greece more than 2,000 years ago.
Today, bereaved mothers Grace Idowu and Margaret Mizen visited a school in Wapping that had taken part in the campaign.
