ARE THESE THE BOMBERS?
SkyTVNews | July 22, 2005
Police have issued CCTV pictures of four men they urgently want to speak to in connection with the attempted bombing in London this week.
The pictures were taken at Tube stations and on a bus where small explosions occured on Thursday.
Assistant Police Commissioner Andy Hayman said the men should not be approached by the public, and that anyone with any information should phone 999 immediately.
He said: "These are four men we urgently want to trace in connection with attempts to detonate four explosive devices on the transport system in central London yesterday.
"It's crucial that detectives are able to question them about events at the Oval, Shepherd's Bush and Warren Street London Underground stations and a route 26 bus in Hackney Road."
The pictures show one man running away from a Tube station, two other men caught on film at two other stations, and one on the top deck of a bus.
Earlier, police killed a suspected suicide bomber at a Tube station in south London.
Armed officers opened fire on the suspect after he hurdled a ticket barrier and raced along a platform at Stockwell station.
Police screamed at passengers to evacuate and are thought to have shot the suspect as he stumbled on to a train.
Alarmed onlookers said they saw up to 10 plain-clothed officers chasing an Asian-looking man before opening fire.
Metropolitan Police chief Sir Ian Blair said the shooting was "directly linked" to ongoing anti-terrorist invetigations in the capital.
He said the man had failed to comply with instructions from police before he was shot dead.
The public should not approach these men and should dial 999 immediately if they know of their whereabouts, a spokesman said.
Witness Mark Whitby was on the train as he saw a big man wearing a large coat and "looking absolutely petrified" lurch through the doors.
Admitting to being "totally distraught", he went on: "He half-tripped, was half-pushed to the floor.
"The policeman nearest to me had the black automatic pistol in his left hand, he held it down to the guy and unloaded five shots into him."
Unconfirmed reports suggest the man was involved in Thursday's assault on the capital; it is not known if he had a bomb when shot.

If the suspect is proved to be a suicide bomber, it would mark the fifth attempted terrorist attack on London in less than a day.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "We can confirm that just after 10am armed officers shot a male at Stockwell Underground station.
"A man was challenged by officers and subsequently shot. London Ambulance Service attended the scene. He was pronounced dead at the scene."
Police are believed to be under orders to shoot to kill if they believe someone is about to detonate a bomb.
Sky News Crime Correspondent Martin Brunt said: "The officer or officers involved in this clearly felt this suspect was about to detonate a bomb."
Three eyewitnesses were taken to a nearby veterinary surgery by police before being taken away for interview.
Detectives also searching an address in West Kilburn, Scotland Yard said.
Armed police were at the scene in north west London as a precaution and no arrests have been made, a spokesman said.
Witnesses reported that a small area of Harrow Road had been cordoned and what looked like a bomb disposal vehicle was in the area.
They said police had told them to stay indoors although the area had not been evacuated.
