London Police Chief: Significant Progress in Bombing Probe


London police chief Ian Blair says police have made what he calls "significant" progress in its investigation into last week's failed London subway bombings.

Investigators said Tuesday they found a large amount of suspicious material in a north London apartment connected to one of the four wanted suspects.

They have also seized a suspicious car parked near the apartment.

The suspects fled from three London subway stations and a bus when their bombs failed to explode on July 21st.

Police have identified two of the suspects as a British citizen from Eritrea and a Somali living legally in Britain.

Authorities are looking for a link between the July 21 attack and the July 7 London suicide bombings that killed 56 people.
