London Bomb Suspect Remanded in Custody

A British court has remanded into custody the first suspect formally charged in connection with the failed July 21 bombings on the London transport system.

Ismael Abdurahman, who appeared in a London court Thursday, is accused of withholding information that may have helped police find those involved in terrorism.

Meanwhile, thousands of British police are patrolling the streets of London, four weeks after the July 7 bomb attacks on the city's transit system that killed 56 people, including four suicide bombers.

In another development, an Italian court has scheduled an August 17 extradition hearing for one of the suspects in the July 21 failed London bombings.

British authorities have alleged that Hamdi Issac, also known as Osman Hussein, fled to Italy after he and three other men tried to set off bombs. Mr. Issac, a British citizen of Ethiopian descent, was arrested last Friday.
