Muktar Said-Ibrahim,16132,1537640,00.html

Muktar Said-Ibrahim, the suspected London bomber, was jailed for five years in 1996 at Wood Green crown court in north London for his role in a teenage gang which robbed people in the Welwyn Garden City and Stevenage areas of Hertfordshire.

Former friends were quoted as saying that, as a youngster, he smoked cannabis and was known as a troublemaker.

He applied to become a British citizen in November 2003, and was granted a passport last September.

The Home Office declined to explain how it was possible to get a passport with his criminal record.

Was he recruited by the security services?
