Police Hunt Mastermind Behind Home-Grown Bombers

Scoop Link: Police hunt mastermind behind home-grown suicide bombers

The Guardian has reported that four men believed to be responsible for the bomb attacks against London were born and bred Brits.

The Guardian - Four home-grown suicide bombers, three of them from West Yorkshire and none of them known to the police, carried out last Thursday's bomb attacks on London, police believe. The hunt is now on for the person who police believe may have masterminded the bombings and who may have already left the country.

"Normality now will not be the same as normality was before," a senior security source said last night, reflecting on what looks certain to have been Britain's first experience of suicide bombers. The discovery of a bomb factory in Leeds indicates to the police that there were plans for future attacks.

Four men, between 18 and 30, three of them with West Yorkshire addresses and all of them British, met up at Luton station before boarding a Thameslink train to King's Cross last Thursday morning.
