British police make four arrests in failed London bombings

[JURIST] Police arrested four suspects before dawn Wednesday morning in Birmingham, England, while searching for men wanted in last week's failed London bomb attacks [JURIST report]. Reports from local media indicate that one of the men, subdued with a stun gun by police, was a suspected bomber, although police would not confirm a BBC report that the man is Somali Yasin Hassan Omar. In Britain since 1992, Omar is suspected of trying to blow up a subway train near Warren Street station on July 21. Read the West Midlands Police press release on the arrests. AP has more.
