London terror search goes global

By Brian Murphy

LEEDS, England -- Police in Cairo have detained a biochemist who studied in the United States and taught at a university in Leeds -- the home base for at least three of the London bombers. Investigators in Britain raided an Islamic book shop and the Egyptian's home, searching for explosives and other evidence yesterday.

In another sign of the investigation's widening global reach, Metropolitan Police Commissioner Ian Blair said authorities were trying to determine whether any of the four "foot soldiers" -- suicide bombers who ranged in age from 18 to 30 -- had ties with Pakistan-based cells of the al Qaeda terror network.
