    All Four Bombers Died

    ALL FOUR BOMBERS DIED

    http://www.sky.com/skynews/article/0...385127,00.html

    All four suspected bombers died during the London terror attacks, according to police sources.

    Sky News crime correspondent Martin Brunt said three bombers died in separate Tube attacks and one was killed in the No 30 bus blast.

    Detectives believe all four were British citizens, Brunt said.

    It was still not clear if the attackers were all suicide bombers.

    This follows witness reports of a man on the bus in an agitated state constantly looking into his bag before the blast in Tavistock Square.

    Brunt said police had made a number of arrests in Leeds today in relation to last Thursday's bombings.

    They were also poised to make arrests in London, he said.

    The news comes as armed police search a house in Leeds after the Army used a controlled explosion to get in.

    Hundreds of people had already been evacuated from the area around Hyde Park Road, Burley.

    No one was in the house at the time but armed officers had been used as a precaution.

    Five other homes in Leeds had earlier been raided by police hunting the terrorists behind last week's attacks.

    Neighbours at one of the addresses said a 22-year-old man who lived there with his family had gone missing.

    Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair said the raids were "directly connected" to Thursday's atrocity.

    Hours later, police evacuated Luton railway station and car park to recover a vehicle suspected of being linked with the terrorist attacks.

    Furthermore Vincent Cannistraro, the former head of the CIA's counter-terrorism centre, told The Guardian that "two unexploded bombs" were recovered as well as "mechanical timing devices".

    Why would suicide bombers use "mechanical timing devices"?

    "Police also have recovered what they believe are the remnants of timing devices on the subway explosions, leading them to believe they were not suicide bombs but explosives planted in packages or bags and left behind."

    "The bombs that ripped through three London subway trains during Thursday's morning rush hour were high explosives triggered almost simultaneously, most likely by synchronized timing devices rather than by suicide bombers, according to a revised account released on Saturday by police."

    My question is... now that there is no one left to be blamed, who will be?

    CNN is saying one died, the Guardian is saying 2 died, and MSNBC splashed the same headline I did, and now have retracted it...

    Here's what MSNBC is saying...

    "LEEDS, England - Investigators in the London bombings said Tuesday they are focusing on four men, at least one of whom "very likely" died in one of the blasts. They also said that they had made an arrest in the investigation.

    The briefing by investigators followed reports that police believe there were four bombers — all British citizens — and that they all died in the attacks last Thursday on three London subway lines and a bus.

    Sky TV first reported that suspicion, citing police sources, and a senior U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told NBC News that British authorities now believe the four carried out a suicide mission."

    BOMBER DIED IN TUBE BLAST

    (Gold9472: Same link as above, updated)

    It is "highly likely" one of the Tube bombers died in the attacks on the Underground network - but Sky News has been told all the men were suicide bombers.

    But Sky News correspondent Martin Brunt said senior anti-terror police were working on the assumption the men were suicide bombers and had died in the explosions.

    The suspected bombers travelled down from the West Yorkshire and met at Kings Cross station shortly before the attacks were launched on Thursday morning, police said at a press conference.

    Their images were captured by CCTV cameras.

    Personal documents have been found at all four bomb scenes and although the four attackers are thought to have died police were careful not to say whether Britain had suffered its first suicide bomb strike.

    Anti-terror police said they had traced the men and six arrest warrants have been issued for addresses in West Yorkshire.

    Police said there was forensic evidence that meant it was "very likely" the bomber responsible for the train explosion at Aldgate died there.

    One of the four men had been reported missing by his family on the day of the attacks and his property was found at the bus blast scene.

    The second man's property was found at the scene of the Aldgate blast and the third man's property at both the Aldgate and Edgware Road blasts.

    One man has just been arrested in west Yorkshire in connection with the attacks.

    Deputy Assistant Commissioner Peter Clarke, head of Scotland's Yard anti-terrorist branch, said: "The investigation quite early led us to have concerns about the movement and activities of four men, three of whom came from the West Yorkshire area.

    "We are trying to establish their movements in the run-up to last week's attack and specifically to establish whether they all died in the explosions. We executed six warrants under the Terrorism Act at premises in the West Yorkshire area.

    "These included the home addresses of three of the four men. A detailed forensic examination will now follow and this is likely to take time to complete."

    He continued: "We know that all four of these arrived in London by train on the morning. We have identified CCTV footage showing the four men at King's Cross Station shortly before 8.30am on that morning, July 7.

    "One of them who had set out from West Yorkshire was reported missing by his family to the casualty bureau on July 7. We have been able to establish that he was joined on his journey to London by three other men. We have since found personal documents bearing the names of three of those four men close to the seats of three of the explosions.

    "As regards to the man who is missing, some of his property was found on the route 30 bus in Tavistock Square. Property of a second man was found at the scene of the Aldgate bomb and in relation to a third man property with his name was found at the Aldgate and Edgware Road bombs.

    "We have strong forensic evidence that it is very likely that one of the men from West Yorkshire died at the explosion at Aldgate."

    Sky News terror expert Steve Park said the documents may have been deliberately planted to "send police the wrong way".

    The news comes as armed police search a house in Leeds after the Army used a controlled explosion to get in.

    It was the discovery that the bus bomber was likely to have died in the blasts that triggered the raids. Hundreds of people were evacuated from the area around Hyde Park Road, Burley.

    No one was in the house at the time but armed officers had been used as a precaution. Five other homes in Leeds had earlier been raided by police hunting the terrorists behind last week's attacks.

    Neighbours at one of the addresses said a 22-year-old man who lived there with his family had gone missing. Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair said the raids were "directly connected" to Thursday's atrocity.

    Hours later, police evacuated Luton railway station and car park to recover a vehicle suspected of being linked with the terrorist attacks. The car was blown up in two controlled explosions.

    No doubt, I'm sure the alleged bombers will turn up alive somewhere. Another parallel with 9/11.
