Full image caption

Jean Charles de Menezes was a Brazilian national shot dead by police at Stockwell tube station on 22 July 2005. He was shot in the head seven times at close range by Metropolitan Police officers who misidentified him as a suicide bomber about to explode a device on the London Underground.
The shooting sparked public debate over an apparent change in police policy, in which a shoot to kill practice known as Operation Kratos had been introduced to deal with terrorist threats.
On the day of the shooting, the police were hunting the four suspects on the run after the failed bombing of the London Underground the previous day.
