Reports on BBC are stating that all four London would-be bombers have been arrested. The last was arrested by Italian police in Rome.


Hey AA, the 1960s called. They want their planes back!

Good news.

Maybe the UK wont feel the need to declare war on an entire country to bring the "alleged" bombers to justice.

Just don't try them in California!

Hopefully the interrgators won't go easy on them. Send 'em to Club G'itmo.

While anti-terrorist legislation in the UK allows, with a judge's permission, the detaining of a terrorist suspect for an extended period of time without charge, due process is still followed. They will be allowed legal representation at all times.

No, we won't take them to Gitmo because;
a) Torture does not work.
b) It would be a PR disaster.
c) These are high grade catches, real terrorists, as opposed to whoever the Afghan Northern Alliance felt like handing over to the US, (for cash), so mostly low grade Taliban foot-soldiers or anyone who happened to piss off the NA, in the Cuban sun.
d) We know torture does not work, but these four thought they'd die instantly and go to paradise, now they face the rest of their lives in Belmarsh prison, so some or all may crack under proper, rigorous, skilled interrogation, which also preserves the basic rule of law in this country.

Good work by the Met.

And that is the happiest thought of all. Justice can, ever so sometimes, actually win, and the universe continues to unfold as it should. Well done coppers, nice to see hard work pay off.

I'll echo those praising the swift and effective work of the Met here. Within a week, it seems they've tracked them all down and caught them - and alive too. We all know the immense pressure they're under right now, so a few words of unreserved praise are in order.

And yes, GDB is right. We'll be putting this lot through the full judicial process, and they can sit and stew over what they tried to do for the next forty years.

You must be kidding. They'll interrogate them hard, but they won't do anything that might jeopardise a successful prosecution. Torture would.

And Kudos to the Italian Police in Rome too.

Does not mean there are not others out there, preparing.
But now they face possibly unreliable bombs and the prospect of not eternal paradise, but something that would feel like eternity, but served at Her Majesties Pleasure.

Great job...but wasn't it the Yanks that wanted to pick up one of the guys associated with the attacks...and were denied by the Brits because he was a British citizen? That was a great decision.

The !st 24 Hours in Police Detention in Britain on Suspected Anti Terror Matter"s they have no rite to Legal help.

After the 1st 24 hours Suspect"s can get Legal help.
Also rest period"s can be denied in the 1st 24 hour"s

Indeed well done to the police in London and Italy.

However, I am the only person who feels slightly uneasy with these people being labelled "the bombers." The simple fact is that in the UK, we have this tradition called "justice." One of the principles of this system is that an individual is innocent until PROVEN guilty in a court of law. These guys haven't actually been tried or convicted on anything. Fair enough the evidence against them may appear compelling but it seems to me completely out of order to label someone a criminal who hasn't been through the court system. In particular I think these guys right to a fair trail has been seriously compromised, how is any jury in the world going to be able to sit through a trial for these guys without "knowing" at the start that they are guilty.

just my thoughts

You're darn right! And no, I'm not contradicting myself, as you try to imply:

1) The 4 bombers are guilty, hands down. These guys are terrorists, the real deal. The Gitmo guys are low level Talibans who haven't been charged or convicted of anything, just suspected of collaborating with the enemy.

2) Gitmo torture is government-sponsored torture. That's bad. But nothing wrong with a little rough 'n tumble in the prison cell. Boys will be boys.

They've been caught on tape trying to blow up subways and buses. It doesn't get much more obvious than that.

According to a friend I just talked to, who has been a sergeant in the RAF Regiment for 15 years and once had to escort a prisoner to the police station the suspects are being held, this place and the guards are extremely intimidating. My friend is a tough bloke and a veteran of both the Falklands war and Northern Ireland, working as a railway security guard in Germany today, and so has seen a bit, he told me that this place gave even him the creeps even though he was just escorting a prisoner and not a prisoner himself. He said that the guards there have been picked for being big and tough.
