London Subway Bombing Attacks • The blast at Kings Cross killed 27 people, 14 died on the bombed bus at Tavistock Square, the attack at Edgware Rd killed seven and the Aldgate blast killed eight. • Police sources have told the BBC they have not recovered any timing devices from the bomb scenes, possibly indicating that detonation was by hand • Hussain had been reported missing by his family, and personal belongings of some of the group were found at the bomb scenes • Counter-terrorism officials believe the group of four would have had an outside "controlling hand" who could still be at large • More than 3,500 calls have been made by the public to an anti-terrorist hotline and police have taken more than 800 witness statements. • Police are also analyzed more than 6,000 CCTV tapes

They go to the tube station and fan out on different lines 2.ShehzadTanweer takes the Circle line eastbound.

  6. AumShinrikyo AumShinrikyo, which is also known as Aum and Aleph, is a Japanese cult that combines tenets from Buddhism, Hinduism, and is obsessed with the apocalypse.

  7. AumShinrikyo The group made headlines around the world in 1995 when members carried out a chemical attack on the Tokyo subwaysystem. A nerve agent, sarin, was released onto train cars, killing twelve and causing an estimated six thousand people to seek medical attention, according to the U.S. State Department 2007 Country Report. AumShinrikyois listed as a terrorist organization because of the 1995 attack and for previous attempts to carry out biological and chemical attacks.

  8. AumShinrikyo The group split into two factions in 2007 due to internal friction over attempts to moderate the cults' religious beliefs and improve its public image. Despite thirteen years of inactivity, both groups remain under surveillance by Japanese authorities. Most of Aum's current 1,500 members live in Japan while about three hundred reside in Russia, says the State Department.

  9. The 1995 Sarin Attack During the morning rush hour on one of the world's busiest commuter systems, Aum members put a liquid form of sarin, tightly contained in packages made to look like lunch boxes or bottled drinks, onto five cars on three separate subway lines that converged at the Kasumigaseki station, where several government ministries are located. The 1995 attack was the most serious terrorist attack in Japan's modern history, causing massive disruption and widespread fear in a society that is virtually free of crime. But the subway attack also showed the world just how easy it is for a small cult or group of terrorists with limited means to engage in chemical warfare.

  10. Madrid Train Bombings March 11,2004 On March 11, 2004 Chaos erupted in the Spanish Capital of Madrid Spain. Commuters in Madrid have described the terror and chaos as a series of blasts ripped through trains in the Spanish capital. The morning rush hour came to a standstill as emergency services dealt with scores of people killed and more than 1,400 injured in the blasts. "There were pieces of train in the street and dead people trapped in the twisted iron," one resident told BBC News Online.

  11. On 11 March 2004, a series of bombs exploded within minutes of each other on four commuter trains in the Spanish capital Madrid. • The blasts killed 191 people and wounded 1,841. It was the worst terror attack in Europe since the Lockerbie bombing in 1988.

  12. Seven of the key suspects - including the alleged mastermind, Tunisian SerhanebenAbdelmajidFakhet - died in an explosion at a Madrid flat in April 2004 as police were closing in on them. A policeman also died. • Twenty one people, mostly Moroccans, were convicted of involvement in the attacks. Three of the key defendants received maximum jail sentences.

  13. All four of the trains targeted by the bombers had left Alcala de Henares station, 19 miles from Madrid. • Ten explosions ripped through the busy carriages as the trains were either in stations or just outside. • Three bombs failed to go off and were later deactivated by explosives experts.

  14. Border Wars Drug violence on the U.S. Mexican Border

  15. The violence has also been fueled by the splintering of drug organizations under siege, which led to escalating rounds of bloody infighting over territory and criminal rackets.

  16. In February 2011, the Pentagon began flying high-altitude, unarmed drones over Mexican skies in hopes of collecting information to turn over to Mexican law enforcement agencies. A Homeland Security drone was said to have helped Mexican authorities find several suspects linked to the Feb. 15 killing of Jaime Zapata, a United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement Immigration agent.
