Three arrested over July 7 bombings
5.31, Thu Mar 22 2007

Three men have been arrested in connection with the July 7 London bombings.

Two men, aged 23 and 30, were arrested shortly before 1pm at Manchester Airport when they were due to catch a flight to Pakistan.

A third man, aged 26, was arrested at a house in Leeds shortly after 4pm.

The trio were arrested by Scotland Yard officers from the force's Counter Terrorism Command.

They are the first significant arrests in connection with the bombings, in which 52 innocent people were killed.

The men were arrested on suspicion of the commission, preparation, or instigation of acts of terrorism under the Terrorism Act 2000.

They are being taken to a central London police station where they will be kept in custody and interviewed by anti-terror officers.

Searches are being carried out at five houses in the Leeds area and at a flat and separate business premises in east London.

The arrests aree as a massive breakthrough in the investigation, which police have always insisted remained ongoing despite few outward signs of progress in the past 18 months.

An official account of the 2005 attacks last year concluded the terrorist plotters who inspired and prepared the July 7 bombers were still at large. [Did it?]

There was also considerable evidence that al-Qaeda was linked to the attacks.

One of the reports said it was "likely" that the ringleader, Mohammed Sidique Khan, and his right-hand man, Shehzad Tanweer, had been in contact with al-Qaeda figures while in Pakistan and received some training.

They also confirmed that both had come to the attention of the security services before the four bombers blew themselves up and that Khan had crossed the radar on numerous occasions.

However, they were not classed as key targets and only "limited" attempts were made to investigate them because of "other more pressing priorities".

The other bombers were Hasib Hussain and Jermaine Lindsay.

In some ways she was far more acute than Winston, and far less susceptible to Party propaganda. Once when he happened in some connection to mention the war against Eurasia, she startled him by saying casually that in her opinion the war was not happening. The rocket bombs which fell daily on London were probably fired by the Government of Oceania itself, "just to keep the people frightened." -- George Orwell, 1984

Not really!
"We are not democrats for, among other reasons, democracy sooner or later leads to war and dictatorship. Just as we are not supporters of dictatorships, among other things, because dictatorship arouses a desire for democracy, provokes a return to democracy, and thus tends to perpetuate a vicious circle in which human society oscillates between open and brutal tyranny and a lying freedom." - Errico Malatesta, Democracy and Anarchy 1924

I was thinking the same - also takes the spotlight of the increasingly ridiculous 21/7 trial. Perhaps also a cover for any Crevice acquittals?

e) the extent of Al Qaida involvement is unclear. Khan and Tanweer may
have met Al Qaida figures during visits to Pakistan or Afghanistan. There
was contact with someone in Pakistan in the run up to the bombings. Al
Qaida’s deputy leader has also claimed responsibility;

f) it remains unclear whether others in the UK were involved in radicalising
or inciting the group, or in helping them to plan and execute it. But there is
no evidence of a fifth bomber;

It all acts as a continuing excuse for not releasing "EVIDENCE" concerning July 7th. It is all still part of an ongoing Inquiry, and is needed by the police, the DPP and the courts.
