Kudo's to the Brits on the nabs
From the AP:
"LONDON - Without firing a shot, police raiding apartments Friday in London and Rome rounded up the last of the four suspected attackers from the failed July 21 transit bombings in Britain.Never mind that later in the report she notes this:
Two of the suspects were arrested in west London, near the trendy Notting Hill neighborhood, following raids by heavily armed police wearing gas masks and lobbing stun grenades.
Video of the arrests broadcast by ITV News/Daily Mail in London showed two men identified as bombing suspects stripped to the waist and emerging at gunpoint on a balcony of an apartment after police apparently fired tear gas inside.
Tracing cell phone calls across Europe, police in Rome arrested Osman Hussain, a naturalized British citizen from Somalia, said Italian Interior Minister Giuseppe Pisanu. Hussain, who reportedly fled London and stopped in Milan and Bologna en route to the Italian capital, was "the fourth attacker," he said.
With those arrests, as well as that of Yasin Hassan Omar on Wednesday in the city of Birmingham, authorities believe they have captured all four men whose photos they released following last week's botched bombings, a police official said."
"... 'I heard six loud bangs, which I found out from a policeman were stun grenades I believe, and then I heard two shots,' witness Patrick Ball said."but, I hope someone at AP will explain to Ms. Lawless that it is unusual for there to be a shoot out when the police start off with lobbing stun grenades and tear gas.
Anyway, congrats to the Brits. Keep rounding them up.
