Police release CCTV image of
four alleged London bombers
U.K. authorities are drip-feeding CCTV images of the four alleged London bombers, to help bolster the credibility of their tale.
The latest is claimed to have been taken as they entered Luton train station to (presumably) board a train for London.
And there's still no sign yet that police will release images they claim to have of the four in King's Cross station, London -where they are alleged to have split up.
Police have also confirmed the name of all four men for the first time: Mohammed Sidique Khan, 30, Germaine Lindsay, 19, Hasib Hussain, 18, and Shahzad Tanweer, 22.

Pakistani intelligence officials are looking into a connection between one of the three Britons and two al-Qaeda-linked militant groups in that country. They confirmed that Shahzad Tanweer spent four or five days at a complex run by the terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba and said he also met a member of another al-Qaeda-linked Pakistani terrorist group who was later arrested for bombing a church in Islamabad.
More details emerged yesterday that there had been indications an attack was imminent. Plans for attacks on targets in both the United States and Britain were discovered among material found during the capture of Abu Faraj Farj al-Liby, one of the most senior al-Qaeda leaders, and of a Pakistani computer expert, Mohammad Naeem Noor Khan....

She sobbed: “He wasn’t the sort of person who’d do this. I won’t believe it until I see proof.” JAMAL did work experience with his local council while still at school — and said he “thoroughly enjoyed it.”
