In 2002, terrorists detonated a bomb in a busy nightclub in Bali, killing 202 people. Just near the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, at the bottom of Clive Steps, is a memorial to the victims, twenty seven of whom were British, The simple but moving sculpture by Gary Breeze and Martin Cook was unveiled on the fourth anniversary of the bombing. It is a granite sphere measuring 1.5 metres in diameter, with 202 doves carved into it. The names of all the victims are engraved on the wall behind. The memorial looks out across Horse Guards Road to St James' Park.
