Body identified as that of would-be British bomber

Israeli forensics experts on Monday identified a body that had washed up on a Mediterranean beach as that of a Briton who tried to blow himself up near a Tel Aviv pub, but ran away when his bomb failed to go off. The identification was made with the help of DNA samples brought to the Israeli Forensics Institute on Monday by British detectives, said Dr. Yehuda Hiss, the head of the institute. The body, found last week, was that of Omar Khan Sharif, 27, of Derby in central England, Hiss said. Sharif was the alleged accomplice of Asif Hanif, 21, from the London suburb of Hounslow.
