7 July London bombs -truth and lies about devices


The police have changed the story several times.

One source says the explosives were C4. Then the story changes.

One source says that Aswat made phonecalls to two of the 'bombers' who 'died'. Then the police say that Aswat was not connected to the plot.

One source says that de Menezes was wearing a heavy coat. Then the story changes.

One source tells us that timers, and not suicide bombers, were involved in the 7 July attacks. Now, 24 August 2005, the police are trying to tell us that it was suicide bombers.

Vikram Dodd and Rosie Cowan of the Guardian have put their names to a story, from un-named police sources, that the 7 July bombers were suicide bombers and pressed buttons to set of their bombs. The story is probably as false as the story that de Menezes had wires coming out of his coat.

LONDON (AP) -- The bombs used in London's terrorist attacks held less than 10 pounds of explosives, police said Friday - light enough to easily tote in a bag or knapsack - yet police found no evidence suicide attackers set them off.

They declined to respond to questions about a U.S. official's claim that evidence indicating timers were used was found in the debris.

The three bombs that ripped through London underground trains this week went off almost simultaneously, police said on Saturday, making it more likely they were detonated by timers rather than suicide bombers.A fourth bomb that blew up a bus almost an hour later was probably left in a bag and not triggered by a suicide bomber, they added.

London bombs believed on sophisticated timers
By MATT MOORE Associated Press Writer

Three bombs containing sophisticated explosives hit the London Underground within less than a minute of each other, police said Saturday as a clearer picture emerged of the coordinated attacks last week that killed at least 49 people.

The bombs on the subway went off within a span of 50 seconds Thursday, suggesting detonation by synchronized timers rather than suicide bombers, police said, revising earlier accounts that the blasts occurred within a 26-minute span.

Suicide bombs breakthrough gives police vital clues

The four terrorists who killed 56 people in London on July 7 triggered the bombs themselves by pressing a device similar to a button, senior police sources have told the Guardian.

The discovery scotches the theory that the four British-born men may have been duped into carrying the rucksack bombs on to three crowded tube trains and one bus, unaware they were going to explode.

Initially it was thought the bombs might have been attached to devices on mobile phones, a method used in the Madrid bombings to devastating effect.

This breakthrough - more than six weeks since the attacks - provides police with potentially important clues about the bombers' planning and technical knowhow.

The news that the bomb attacks were carried out with button-like devices triggering the bombs was confirmed to the Guardian by several separate senior police and counter-terrorism sources.

Bruce Lait - I don't remember anybody being where the bomb was, or any bag.


CAMBRIDGE dancer Bruce Lait has spoken of his miraculous escape when a bomb exploded just yards away from him in a Tube train carriage...

Mr Lait ... believes he and his dance partner Crystal Main were the only passengers in the carriage who survived the blast without serious injury - even though they were sitting nearest to where the bomb detonated.

As they made their way out, a policeman pointed out where the bomb had been."The policeman said 'mind that hole, that's where the bomb was'.The metal was pushed upwards as if the bomb was underneath the train. They seem to think the bomb was left in a bag, but I don't remember anybody being where the bomb was, or any bag," he said.
