Man Charged Over July 21 Bomb Attacks

A man has been charged under the Terrorism Act 2000 in connection with the attempted bombings in London on July 21, 2005.

Detectives from Scotland Yard’s Terrorism Command arrested Lukimon Sulaimon, 23, in Brighton on Tuesday. He was taken into custody in Sussex and charged with failing to disclose information, which might help in bringing a terrorist to justice.

Two searches were also carried out at addresses in the Brighton and Hove areas in connection with his arrest.

Mr Sulaimon is due to appear before City of Westminster Magistrates' Court on Thursday.

Last week, four men were jailed for life for their part in the July 21 bomb plot.

Muktar Ibrahim, 29, Yassin Omar, 26, Ramzi Mohammed, 25, and Hussain Osman, 28, were found guilty of plotting to detonate explosive devices on three Tube trains and a bus in London. The attempted attacks came two weeks after suicide bombers killed 52 people in attacks on three Tube trains and a bus in the capital.
