London Bomber Charged

One of the suspects in the failed London bombings will appear in court today.
Yassin Omar, alleged to be the 21 July Warren Street tube bomber has been accused of conspiracy to murder. Omar was arrested in Birmingham after being subdued with a stun gun.

The other accused 21 July bombers are still in Police custody and have not yet been charged.

In a further indication as to how deep and wide spread the Islamist disease is, a further six people have been charged under the Terrorism Act with failing to disclose information that could have helped police investigating the July 21 attacks. These arrests in Brighton include the wife and sister in law of would be Shepherd's Bush bomber Hussain, who remains in Rome in Italian Police custody.

Meanwhile in Zambia Briton, Haroon Aswat, arrested in Zambia two weeks ago on suspicion of terrorism, has been deported to Britain.

Aswat, 31, was named in some media reports as the alleged mastermind behind the July 7 blasts that killed 56 people including four suicide bombers, but British police have not confirmed he is wanted in connection with the attacks.

There is talk he will immediately be extradited to the US where he is wanted for organising a terrorist training camp in Oregon. Interpol issued an arrest warrant for Aswat a couple of weeks ago on behalf of the US.
