Seems like the Brits think they have some leads in the investigation:
Authorities announced today that police had raided five homes in the northern city of Leeds and said the action was “directly connected” to last Thursday’s terrorist bombings of subway trains and a bus.
The raids, which started at around 6.30 a.m., come five days after terrorists detonated four bombs during the morning rush-hour on July 7, killing at least 52 people and leaving hundreds more injured in London’s worst day of terror in decades.
There were no immediate reports of arrests.
Later today, the police closed a railway station in Luton, about 25 minutes north of London, to examine a car suspected of ties to the bombings. No arrests were announced so far and no other details were immediately available.
Also today, U.S. officials rescinded an order that ordered about 10,000 military personnel personnel stationed at air bases in eastern England to avoid London following the terror attacks.
The Scotsman has more:
THE BODY of a suspected bomber thought to have been responsible for the blast on a bus last week in London was identified, according to reports quoting unidentified sources.
The person’s name was not reported and Scotland Yard refused to confirm the claims, however police carried out a series of raids across Leeds today based on this apparent information, the sources said.
Police hunting the London bombers were led to six properties in the West Yorkshire area – including Leeds – as part of an “intelligence-led operation”, described by Sir Ian Blair, commissioner of the Metorpolian Police, as “significant”.
