Forensic Evidence Leads to 2 Arrests
London police commissioner Sir Ian Blair announced that substantial forensic evidence had been recovered in relationship to Thursday’s bombings. Two arrests have been made, one of them near a bomb site, another near the Downing Street prime minister’s residence.
Since there are eyewitnesses to the attempted bombings who saw the suspects, the police must have an excellent idea of who is behind it, but probably have asked the press not to report those details for the moment. The hints are pretty broad that it was another radical Muslim cell. British authorities are stressing that the bombers are criminals, not representatives of an ethnic group.
