Big Ben's bongs fall silent for repairs

Workmen clean the clock face of St Stephens Tower which houses Big Ben in London Saturday Aug. 11, 2007. Big Ben is losing its bongs — temporarily. The famous bell that sounds the hour at Britain's Houses of Parliament is to fall silent for scheduled repairs for only the fourth time in a century and a half. Officials said the distinctive bongs would strike for the last time at 8 a.m. (0700 GMT) Saturday before four to six weeks of maintenance work on the clock.
