British Police say a fifth bomber, responible for the 7/7 London train and bus bombings, may still be at large. The announcement came after explosives found in a city park, were matched to those used in the bomb attacks, on July 7th.
LONDON - British police Monday identified two of four men believed responsible for last week's botched transit bombings and said an explosive found in a park was like those used in the attempted attacks, raising fears a fifth bomber was on the loose.

London's police chief said the force was "racing against time" to find the bombers, who fled three subway trains and a bus when their devices failed to fully detonate. Those bombs and the one found abandoned Saturday all were made using clear plastic food-storage containers put into dark-colored bags or backpacks.

At a televised press conference, Peter Clarke, head of the Metropolitan Police anti-terrorist squad, held up one of the white-lidded, 1.65-gallon containers — called a Delta 6250 —and urged any shopkeeper who had sold five or more of them to contact police.

Police say they have positively identified two of the bombers, and have released closed circuit TV images of all four, who were alledged to be responsible for the bombings. If there is truly a fifth suspect at large, it will be hard to run him down, without a description.

Here is an update on the posiible fifth bomber in the London Bombings on July 7th.

London Police, now, say that they are not actively seeking a fifth suspect, in the bombings but do not explain how the new explosive evidence can be of value in the investigation, unless there was another person involved. The food storage container with the explosives was found, at a London park, and is identical to the containers used to hold the bombs that blew up two trains and two busses on July 7th.
