London bombing suspect charged with attempted murder after extradition from Italy

[JURIST] Scotland Yard [official website] said Thursday that bombing suspect Hamdi Issac [Wikipedia profile], also known as Hussain Osman, has been charged with attempted murder over the failed 21 July London bomb attacks [JURIST report]. Issac was apprehended in Rome [JURIST report] days after the failed attacks on the London subway and his case is seen by many as a test case for the new European Arrest Warrant [EU backgrounder], which was implemented to speed up extradition in terror and other extraordinary cases. After being flown back to London Thursday, Issac will appear Friday before magistrates sitting at Belmarsh jail, where three other suspected bombers - Ibrahim Muktar Said, Yassin Hassan Omar, and Ramzi Mohamed - are currently being detained.
