Suspects in the failed London bombings of July 21 have appeared at the high security court complex in Belmarsh prison in the city. It is alleged three of the defendants planted bombs on the British capital’s transport system on that day.

Ibrahim Muktar Said, Ramzi Mohammed and Yassin Hassan Omar, are all charged on four counts, including attempted murder. They have been remanded in custody until November 14 when they will appear at the Central Criminal Court, the Old Bailey. Manfo Kwaku Asiedu also appeared. His charges included conspiracy to murder. It is believed that that is in connection with a bag containing explosives found on July 23. He will appear at the Old Bailey in November with the others. The fourth suspected July 21 bomber, Osman Hussein, also known as Hamdi Issac, is being held in Italy. He has indicated he will fight extradition to Britain. And British-born Haroon Rashid Aswad, arrested in Zambia and sent back to the UK, has been remanded until Thursday. He is wanted in the US on terrorism charges.
