Terror Expert: London Bomber Was Working For MI5: Khan used as informant for security services - A noted terror expert has told the BBC that Mohammed Siddique Khan, the alleged ringleader of the 7/7 London bombings, was working for British intelligence agency MI5 as an informant at the time of the attacks. Charles Shoebridge is a 12-year veteran detective of the London Metropolitan Police, a former graduate of the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst, and now a broadcaster and writer on terrorism in the UK. Shoebridge told the BBC Newshour program that from the evidence little else can be assumed other than that Khan was working for British intelligence.
'Bug' in car of 7/7 killer - COPS probing the 7/7 bombings found a hi-tech tracking device in the ringleader’s car just days after the attacks, a senior security official claims. The bug, like those used by police, was allegedly discovered in a car belonging to Mohammed Siddique Khan, the Edgware Road bomber. It is suggested that Special Branch officers put it there during a surveillance operation aimed at Islamic extremists. The claim will fuel criticisms that police missed chances to foil the suicide attacks. An official report showed Khan, 30, came to the attention of MI5 several times. But he was seen only as a “peripheral” figure. The Met refused to comment on the surveillance claims.
London Bomber Mastermind Was Working For MI6 - Haroon Aswat – the man British Police believe was behind the London bombings – was working for MI6, it has been confirmed by leading U.S. and French intelligence asset/agents.
