'Al Qaida London bomb mastermind' held in Zambia

A British al Qaida suspect wanted in connection with the London suicide bombings and reportedly the mastermind behind the attacks has been arrested, it was claimed today.
Haroon Rashid Aswat, who grew up in West Yorkshire, was detained last week in Zambia and is being held for his alleged role in setting up a terror camp in Oregon, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The reports have been played down by Scotland Yard and come as Edgware Road station opened today for the first time since the July 7 bomb attacks.
