Egypt chemist 'not bomb suspect'
An Egyptian chemist detained in Cairo has been cleared of any links with the London bomb attacks, officials say.
An interior ministry report "made clear there was no link between Magdi al-Nashar and al-Qaeda or the bombings", a government spokesman said.

British police have not formally named Mr Nashar as a suspect in their investigation.

The 33-year-old, who was arrested last week, has denied having any role in the attacks that left 56 people dead.

1. What are you taling about? He's already been convicted in the American
Media. And if we could do a survey poll today, I'd bet 85% of Americans would answer the poll that "The guy who they caught in Egypt was the bomb maker."

2. He should have been questioned.
"He is reported to have admitted knowing one of the bombers, Hasib Hussain, and helping to arrange the rental of a flat in which traces of explosives were found."

Then he deserved to be cleared. They were connecting the dots, as they found them. They will continue.

If we could do a survey poll today, I'd bet 85% of Americans would answer the poll that "What guy who they caught in Egypt?"

4. 24 hour press. I heard here that the U.S. caused the tsunami.
I hear a lot of stupid things from stupid people.

8. This guy is very lucky to have friends in such high places...
On Saturday, the Egyptian interior minister said that reports linking Mr -Nashar to al-Qaeda were "groundless" and based on a hasty conclusion.
