Posted on 07/30/2005 12:51:26 AM PDT by SkyPilot
SECURITY chiefs were jubilant last night after police and SAS troops combined brilliantly to corner 21/7 bombing suspects like rats in a trap.
A day of drama ended with ALL five men wanted over last weeks botched London suicide attacks in custody.
Muktar Mohammed-Said, 27, thought to have attempted to blow himself up on a No26 bus, was arrested after a siege at a West London flat.
A man wanted over the Oval Tube attack, named last night as Ramzi Mohammed, was held at the same address.
In another raid less than a mile away, a suspected terrorist said to have dumped a rucksack bomb after 21/7 was nicked.
He was named as Ramzis 22-year-old brother Wahbi.
And in Rome, police arrested Hussain Osman, 27 alleged to have been the Shepherds Bush bomber.
The other alleged gang member, Yassin Hassan Omar, 24, was seized in Birmingham on Wednesday over the Warren Street Tube attack.
Sources said both Ramzi and Osman were Somalis who came to the UK with their families and later claimed British citizenship.
Said and Omar were also East Africans who had become British nationals.
Said and the Oval suspect gave themselves up after a tense stand-off at Dalgarno Gardens on the Peabody Estate in Notting Hill, West London.
SAS troops blew the front door off its hinges with a small specially-designed explosive charge.

Great news. Now what are they going to do with them?
Give them training in sensativity? :)
Too bad we couldnt send them to club gitmo to get information from them. :D
Lets hope they get more than 5 years :-(
You ever wonder why these guys surrendered? I mean, they were about to blow themselves up, now they are afraid of a few bullits?
They could put them on big treadmills and make them power the very trains they tried to destroy.
how about kicking them out of the back of a C-130 ,over the North Sea at about 500ft. ?
Jolly good show, Brits!!!
His journey from London via Milan and Bologna was tracked and Italian police swooped when he reached Rome.
And the brother in law?
Seems to me the Brits were screaming about Abu Grab pictures, no? Muslims don't like to be paraded around naked.... Ah, how perception changes when reality hits close to home.
Any way, well done Bobbies!
Now there is an idea.
For 20 minutes the men refused to give themselves up as they demanded their rights.
Only 500 ft? That doesn't give them much time to think about what it's like to hit the ground at several hundred miles an hour. I'd prefer 20 thousand feet, naked, and wearing an oxygen tank.
They talk a big game, don't they?
Remember Saddam Hussein was "going to go down fighting to his death?"
There are different standards for America, don't you know.
At around midday I saw a man running from a silver car into the flat. Police called to him to stop. They were shouting, Mohammed, get out, get out. Give yourself up.
I guess when you yell "Mohammed, give yourself up"--a lot of heads turn in unison.
I like that line: "Surrender Mohammed!" Kind of a catch phrase for the war we are in.
Hopefully they will NOT be deported!
Oh, you are going to hear how these chaps were mistreated. Too bad they didnt make them wear womens underwear during the perp walk.
