Tube Bomber is arrested & ABC News release chilling pictures

Suspected Warren Street Bomber seized in Birmingham & Bombed Tube carriages are shown

From ABC news - Bombed London Underground carriage at AldgateOne down, three to go. Police have confirmed that Yasin Hassan Omar is being questioned in a high security unit in Paddington Green London over the failed July 21 attacks.

A Taser stun gun was used on Omar.

Deputy assistant commissioner Peter Clarke said - "This of course is an important development in the investigation."

Also Scotland Yard have confirmed that three women had been arrested on suspicion of harbouring the bombers in Stockwell.

The fact that the Police have got the suspected bomber alive is brilliant as hopefully they'll be able to tighten the net even further and find out where the other maniacs are. Reports are coming in that had the 21st July bombs worked they would have caused at least as much destruction as the ones on the 7th.

See the BBC for the full story including a chilling picture of an X ray of a nail bomb said to be amongst those found at Luton after the July 7th attacks.

US broadcaster ABC News has shown exclusive photographs of serveral bombs purportedly found at Luton railway station following the 7 July attacks. The Times provide a transcript of the ABC broadcast.

It also broadcast images of the inside of the London Underground trains destroyed by bombs at Aldgate where eight people were killed, the Edgware Road carriage where seven were killed and the Piccadilly line carriage at between Russell Square and King's Cross where 27 people were killed on the 7th July.
