The BBC is reporting that at least three of the suspected terrorist bombers in last week's London attacks "are believed to be British men of Pakistani origin who lived in West Yorkshire." However, police believe that the attackers probably had outside help. The suspected murderers, who were in their late teens and early twenties, are now believed to have died in the explosions, according to British press accounts.
"It appears our youth have been involved in last week's horrific bombings against innocent people," Sir Iqbal Sacranie of the Muslim Council of Britain said in a statement. Sir Iqbal received the reports of British Muslim involvement in the bombings with "anguish, shock and horror," the BBC reported. Police have arrested a relative of one of the suspected terrorists.
