Three men have been charged by British prosecutors forallegedly conspiring in the suicide attacks in Londonon July 7, 2005 that killed 52 people on underground trains and a bus.

The men charged on Thursday were Mohammed Shakil, 30;Sadeer Saleem, 26; and Waheed Ali, 23. They are from WestYorkshire in northern England.

 

"The allegation is that they were involved inreconnaissance and planning for a plot with those ultimately responsible forthe bombings on the seventh of July before the plan wasfinalised," Susan Hemming, a prosecutor, said.

 

The three men were charged with conspiringbetween November 1, 2004 and June 29, 2005 to cause explosions on London's transport network "and/or touristattractions in London of a naturelikely to endanger life or cause serious injury".

The three men were due for an initial court appearanceSaturday.

Peter Clarke, a senior officer within the LondonMetropolitan Police's anti-terrorism branch, said he expected that furtherarrests would be made as the investigation continued.

"The detail of the evidence must wait, but it isprobably fair to describe it as a complicated jigsaw with thousands ofpieces," Clarke said.

"We now have enough of the pieces in the rightplace for us to see the picture, but it is far from complete. Because of that,the search is not over."
