Police Raid West London Home in 7/21 Case

LONDON – Heavily armed police wearing gas masks and reportedly using stun grenades raided a west London apartment block Friday, seeking suspects in the failed July 21 transit bombings, and British media reported at least one arrest.

Britain’s Press Association reported that police have made a number of arrests in the operation being carried out in at least two locations in Notting Hill about a quarter-mile apart.

Police went door to door in the chic neighborhood, famous for its weekend street market, and told people to evacuate.

“I heard six loud bangs, which I found out from a policeman were stun grenades I believe, and then I heard two shots,” witness Patrick Ball said. “The noise that I heard was an extremely loud bang.”

Police confirmed that “an armed operation is currently in progress” but said it was in the “very early stages.” The area is near west London’s Little Wormwood Scrubs park, where police on Saturday found a fifth bomb in a dark backpack.

Two small explosions in the area could be heard on video broadcast by Sky News. Helicopters buzzed overhead and police cordoned off a number of streets, and said one person had been arrested. A female witness told CNN she saw several people being taken into custody.

Witnesses also reported seeing heavily armed police, some wearing gas masks and others in forensic bodysuits. Some officers were seen wearing ski masks.
