British Police Reportedly Identify One London Bomber

The bus in which the suspect died along with 12 others 12 July 2005 -- British television stations report that one of the bombers responsible for last week's terror strikes in London has been identified.

BBC-TV and Sky News say the bomber died along with 12 other passengers when the explosive he was carrying blew up on a city bus.

At least 52 people were killed in multiple bomb attacks in London on three underground trains and a double-decker bus last on 7 July.

The identification of the bomber led police to the northern English city of Leeds today, where they conducted several house searches. There are unconfirmed reports that arrests were made.

Police also evacuated the Luton railway station, north of London, to recover a car suspected of being connected to last week's bombings.
