3. Pakistan Finds Links to London Bomber
Pakistani Authorities Say One London Bomber Spent Time at al-Qaida-Linked School in Pakistan
By PAUL HAVEN Associated Press Writer

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan Jul 15, 2005 One London suicide bomber spent several days at a religious school in Pakistan run by an al-Qaida-linked terror group, and met with the mastermind of a church attack that killed two Americans, senior intelligence officials said Friday.

The jailed mastermind told authorities he and 22-year-old Shahzad Tanweer met last year, although it was unclear what they discussed, said the two officials, who work at separate intelligence agencies. They spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the secretive nature of their jobs. (...)

One of the intelligence officials told the AP said that Tanweer is believed to have spent four or five days at a radical religious school run by Lashkar-e-Tayyaba, a Sunni Muslim group banned by Musharraf for alleged links to an attack on India's Parliament.

The intelligence official would not say when Tanweer visited the school, but disputed reports that he studied there. Such a brief visit could indicate Tanweer went to the school to meet someone or to get instructions.
