Man Held Over Failed London Attacks

20 December 2005 -- British police say they arrested a man today in connection with the attempted bombings of London's transit system in July.

The 23-year-old man was arrested at a London airport as he got off a flight from Ethiopia. He is suspected of the "commission, preparation, or instigation of acts of terrorism."

Five people have already been charged in connection with the 21 July failed attacks. They took place two weeks after suicide bombers killed 52 bus and metro passengers in London.
