London Underground Bomb Suspect returning to Britain

Hussain Osman has just left Italy

"One of the men suspected of the failed 21 July London bombings has left prison in Italy and is due to be flown to Britain after an extradition request. Hussain Osman, 27, who was arrested in Rome a week after the attacks, is accused of trying to blow up a Tube train at Shepherd's Bush, west London." said the

"His Italian lawyer, Antonietta Sonnessa, appealed against his being sent back to Britain saying he would not get a fair trial.

The case is being seen as a test case for the new European Arrest Warrant, which is intended to speed up extradition in such cases

"The other three suspected bombers - Ibrahim Muktar Said, 27, Yassin Hassan Omar, 24, and Ramzi Mohamed, 23, are currently being held at the same south-east London prison.......All four are due before a judge at the Old Bailey on 14 November."

Apparently Hussain will go straight to a high security detainee centre in Paddington Green when he first arrives in the UK.
