London Failed Bombers Were Under Surveillance
This is a rather surprising admission from the police
:Police were watching and photographing five of the men charged with plotting to bomb London's transport system more than a year before the failed attacks, when they were camping in northwestern England, prosecution witnesses said Wednesday.
One of the alleged plotters also was questioned by British police as he tried to board a flight to Pakistan the same year, but was later allowed to travel.
The trial featured some dramatic footage
:Ramzi Mohammed, 25, was shown boarding the train and turning his back to a mother with a child in a pushchair before allegedly trying, and failing, to detonate a bomb in his rucksack.
Here's a picture of the six men accused; Mohammed is the top middle:
