Nine suspects arrested in London bombings

British police have arrested nine more suspects at Tooting in south London under the Terrorism Act of 2000 in connection with last week's attempted bombings.

Six men were arrested at one address and three at another, the Metropolitan police said in an e-mailed statement. All nine have been taken to a central London police station, the statement said.

None of the men are among the three at-large suspects wanted for failed bombings on London subways and a bus July 21, Sky News said, citing police sources.

The July 7 bombings were carried out by three British-born Muslims of Pakistani heritage who hailed from the city of Leeds, about a three-hour drive north of London, and a fourth British citizen, a Muslim convert of Jamaican birth who lived closer to London.

Three of the July 7 bombers traveled to the city from Luton in north London, and five days later police found more than a dozen unexploded bombs in a car at the Luton train station, two sources familiar with the investigation told CNN.
