UK Terror Arrests

Breaking on Fox News is the arrest of three suspects under anti-terrorism laws at Heathrow Airport in London. Obviously, it is too early to officially say this is related to the bombings in London earlier this week, but I somewhat doubt they're targeting anyone else.

CNN has more.

Seems that your earlier comments about this being an amateur job were premature. The latest reporting, from yesterday and today, suggests that the subway bombs went off nearly simultaneously and not over the span of 10-15 minutes as first suspected. Still no accounting for why the bus bombing occurred when and how it did. It could be that the person involved there was picked by AQ to do an after-bombing attack in and around the emergency crews racing to the scene but he panicked or was otherwise unfamiliar on how to adjust the bomb in some fashion.

Simultaneous explosions simply means that the bombers have a enough intelligence to synchronize a few timers... not something that requires a Mensa membership.
