Officials: Unexploded Devices Discovered in London - ABC
Jul. 7, 2005 - In what appears to be the first major break in the London terrorist attacks, U.S. authorities tell ABC News that British police have recovered two unexploded bombs in London.

In addition, British investigators say that parts of timing devices have been recovered from several of the blast sites. The unexploded devices and timing mechanisms should provide important evidence that could help determine who was behind the attacks, sources told ABC News.

ABC News has learned that police in London found two unexploded devices after the morning's four subway and bus bombings that U.S. officials say left at least several dozen dead and 700 others injured.

Officials also found remnants of timing devices left behind on the subways, and officials now believe that all the bombs were detonated by timing devices. Earlier today, British investigators believed that the bomb on the bus was the work of a suicide bomber, sources said.

3. was told that cell phone service was cut off
as afraid terroists were using them to set off bombs. Makes sense. This from English woman with 4 sons who commute every weekday and unable to reach them.

Funny the media didn't report such?

6. Awesome!!! This is how they tracked down the Madrid bombers
I guess it also shows that it wasn't a suicide operation (at least not completely).

21. suicide on the bus and..
.. remote detonation on the underground. God, it looks cutting off cell service saved people from two of the bombs.

Those Londoners look better and better every moment. They handle crises with such grace and thinking under pressure.

Sad days.

23. reread
they found timers, not any remote control devices. someone merely speculated that remote devices may be used. the two unexploded may just have been duds.

just trying to keep the facts straight.

14. It seems to me that these were amatures...
there bombs were going off at different times and seemed very sloppy


And that group title sounds like bunk. Any title with the word "Secret" in it sounds like bunk right off.

19. Double Secret Probation Jihad

I agree that that names sounds like something someone with a low IQ might have made up, someone so dumb they can't even ride a bike. It reminds me of the Anthrax letters.

On the timing though, it 'could' have been done to heard people to the central area where the bus then blows up, causing more carnage.
