Terror police raid 7/7 'bomb factory' flat
A flat allegedly used to plan the 7/7 terror attacks in London has been raided in the UK. It is unclear why the flat is being raided now, so long after the attacks, which occured in 2005.
Officers began the search of the flat at 7am after receiving information from a member of the public.
They are investigating whether the flat was used for meetings, storing chemicals or making the bombs in the lead up to the attacks, sources told the Daily Telegraph.
The present occupiers are not being connected to the investigation and officers believe an associate may have returned after the attacks to clear it up.
They are hoping that forensic traces may remain which allow them to put another piece of the jigsaw in place.
In the three years since the suicide attacks on the London transport system, police have discovered bomb factories in the Hyde Park and Chapeltown areas of Leeds.
The one-bedroom flat in the Harehills area of North Leeds is around three miles from the other two and on the other side of the city from Beeston where three of the bombers grew up.
