Looks like somebody was playing for keeps...
The discovery of the second bomb, about 20 hours after the first, suggested a co-ordinated and more sophisticated plot than was initially thought — similar to the July 7, 2005 suicide bombings where four bombs exploded within an hour of one another on London's busy transit system.Hopefully, because police they have these vehicles and devices intact, there will be enough forensic evidence to nail the perpetrators.
This may be a very long summer in the U.K.
UPDATE: Iraqi suspect in double bomb incident...
Was under house arrest.
Police say they are looking for an Iraqi who went on the run from a control order only 11 days before yesterday's failed bombing attempts. The man, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, is part of a six-strong cell linked to al-Qaeda in Iraq.
Instead of charging the men in open court and exposing sensitive intelligence, the government imposed control orders, effectively confining them to their homes for 18 hours a day.
He went missing on 18 June in north-west England, and his whereabouts are unknown. He was the second of his group to abscond from a control order.
