Police release pictures of bomb suspects

At a police press conference at the QE II centre in London, Sir Ian Blair, Commissioner of London's Metropolitan Police, said police were facing a "great operational challenge" but that investigations were moving swiftly. "Rumours are sweeping London" he said, and asked that the public to wait for the facts as they were made available. The shooting incident at Stockwell station occurred at 10 am, the Commissioner said. "The man was shot was "directly linked" to these investigations, but he failed to elaborate with precise details. He did say that "any death deeply regrettable."

Images were released of four individuals wanted in connection with the London attacks of 21st July. One of the suspects was pictured running from the scene of the Oval station incident wearing a black sweatshirt emblazoned with 'New York'. The shirt was later found in Cowley Rd., Brixton.
