Police charge man with owning al Qaeda manual

Monday May 21, 2007 

A man arrested by police investigating the London suicide bombings of July 7, 2005 has been charged with possessing an al Qaeda training manual, London's Metropolitan Police force said.

Room Type: Single Twin Double Family rooms Khalid Khaliq, 34, from Beeston in Leeds, is due to appear before magistrates in a London court on Monday.

Charges against Khaliq, who was arrested on May 9 along with three others, state he "possessed a document or record -- namely the Al-Qaeda Training Manual -- containing information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism".

The May 9 police operation was the second wave of arrests within weeks in the vast and long-running investigation into the 7/7 attacks, which killed 52 people on three London underground trains and a bus.

One of those arrested was identified by a source familiar with the investigation as the widow Hasina Patel, whose husband Mohammad Sidique Khan was one of four young British Muslims who blew themselves up in the 7/7 attacks. Patel and the two other men arrested were released without charge.

Three men were charged last month with conspiring with those who carried out the 7/7 attack, the first suicide bombings by Islamist militants in Western Europe.
