Some new light is shed on the British terror raid that took place June 2, 2006. What was thought to be a successful terrorist raid on two brothers
planning to do an attack on London may come crashing down. Since the raid no evidence of biological or chemical weapons of any sort have been found,
and there has been no connection made to al qaeda as initially claimed. Further more, the brother who was shot is claiming that there was no warning,
and he didn't even know the people were police until he was already shot. He said they gave no warning as the rounded the corner as he came down the
steps. They were arrested and questioned under the Terrorist Act.
Controversy is growing over a high profile raid by British anti-terrorist police on Friday in which a suspect was shot. Some 250 police officers took
part in the raid after getting intelligence reports that chemical or biological weapons were being prepared in an East London home.
But no such arms have been found and lawyers for the shot man say he was fired on without warning. A solicitor said: "He was in his pyjamas,
obviously unarmed, empty handed. As he came down the stairs, police rounded a corner, came up the stairs and shot him, in the chest, immediately.
There was no warning and he wants to stress that no warning was given, contrary to what's been said he wasn't asked to freeze. He wasn't given any
warning, he didn't know the people in his house were police officers until after he was shot." The 23 year old man, Mohammed Abdul Kahar, has been
treated for a shoulder wound and will now face questioning by police along with his brother Abul Koyair, also arrested in the raid.
Both men deny any involvement with terrorism. The Independent Police Complaints Commission has launched an investigation into the shooting. The
actions of the British police are under the spotlight following the shooting dead last summer of an innocent Brazillian man who they mistook for a

Well this could be very bad news for the police force if this proves true. Not only can they not find any evidence, but shot the man possibly without
warning. Though its not suprising since the Brazillian man was also shot dead, and he turned out to be innocent.
Is this what America is headed toward? It is a very sad day when democratic nations start killing innocent people, even their own citizens, in the
name of defense. I do not like where this is heading, and it looks like Britian is just a step ahead of what we are heading toward.
