British Police Arrest Three Over July 7, 2005, London Transit Bombings

London (AP) -- British authorities say three suspects are in custody in connection with the London transit bombings of 2005.

No one has ever been charged in the July seventh attacks that killed 52 commuters and four bombers.

Metropolitan Police say two men were arrested at Manchester Airport in northwest England as they prepared to board a flight to Pakistan. The third was arrested at a house in Leeds, the northern city where police were searching five homes.

All are being held on suspicion of commissioning, preparing or instigating acts of terrorism.
