Hunted chemistry expert arrested

An Egyptian chemistry expert sought by police over the London bombings has been arrested in Cairo, Egypt.

Magdi Mahmoud al-Nashar, 33, had not been seen by colleagues in Leeds since early July. British police are searching a house in Leeds linked to Mr al-Nashar, but have not formally named him as a suspect. Earlier, police said they were hunting the financiers, supporters and chemists who assembled the bombs used in the attacks last week. British police have said they want to question Mr al-Nashar, who completed a PhD in chemistry at Leeds University. BBC security correspondent Gordon Corera said Mr al-Nashar’s alleged link to the plot was unclear, but it was believed he handed over keys to a house in Leeds used by the bombers.Full Story
