영국과 이탈리아 경찰은 지난 주인 21일 런던 대중교통망 폭파 미수사건과 관련, 구속된 다섯 명의 테러 용의자들을 심문하고 있습니다. 용의자 심문은 런던과 로마에서 일련의 극적인 경찰 급습이 있은 지 하루 만에 개시된 것입니다.

용의자 가운데 네 명은 경계가 삼엄한 런던의 패딩턴그린 경찰서에서 심문을 받고 있습니다. 다섯 번째 용의자는 이탈리아 경찰에 의해 로마에 구속돼 있습니다.

다섯 명의 용의자는 모두 7월 21일 런던 지하철 세 개 노선의 열차와 한 대의 버스에 대한 폭파미수사건에서 역할을 담당한 혐의를 받고 있습니다. 영국경찰은 혐의자를 14일 내에 입건해야 합니다.

영국의 테러 전문가 휴 맥내머스씨는 경찰은 나중에 기소가  기각되는 것을 막기 위해 용의자들의 법적 권리와 인권을 존중할 것이라고 말합니다.

맥내머스씨는 용의자 심문은, 수사관 두 명이 참석하고 모든 과정에 녹음되며 심문 시간이 한 시간을 넘지않게 하는 등 일반적인 관례를 따를 것이라고 말했습니다. 맥내머스씨는 경찰의 구속 기간이 14일을 초과하면 경찰은 구속 기간 연장 연장 필요성을 입증할 만한 증거를 갖고 법원에 연장을 청구할 수 있다고 말합니다.

경찰은 소말리아태생인 24세의 야신 하산 오마르 등 테러 용의자들에 대한 수사를 진행하는 동안에도 고도의 경계 태세를 늦추지 않고 있습니다. 그 이유는 당국에 아직 탐지되지 않은 테러 세포조직이 런던에서 활동할 가능성이 남아 있기 때문입니다.

800만 런던 시민은 회교 자살폭탄테러범들이 대중교통망에 대한 공격으로 52명이 사망한 7월 7일 이래로 불안에 싸여 있습니다.

British and Italian police are questioning five men arrested in connection with the attempted bombing of London's mass transport network last week (on July 21st). The interrogations come a day after a string of dramatic police raids in London and Rome. VOA's Michael Drudge has more from the British capital.

TEXT: Four of the suspects are being questioned at London's high security Paddington Green police station. A fifth man is in custody of Italian police in Rome. They are all suspected of having roles in the bungled attempt to blow up three London subway trains and a bus on July 21st. British police can hold their suspects for 14 days while they try to develop a case. A British terrorism expert, Hugh McManus, says police will want to respect the legal and human rights of the suspects, so as not to jeopardize any future prosecution.

/// McMANUS ACT /// "The questioning sessions will take place in the usual fashion with two detectives present, the whole thing being recorded, and for no longer than an hour, that sort of period of time. And of course, once the 14-day period is over, the police can then apply to court with the evidence that they've got for an extension." /// END ACT ///

Police have given the following information on the suspects: Yasin Hassan Omar is a 24-year-old man originally from Somalia who came to Britain as a refugee in 1992. He is suspected of trying to bomb a subway train on the Victoria Line near Warren Street station. Muktar Said Ibrahim is 27 years old and was born in Eritrea.

He gained British citizenship in 2004. Police say he tried to blow up a bus in East London. Ramzi Mohammed was arrested along with Muktar Said Ibrahim in a raid in London's Notting Hill neighborhood. His age and birthplace have not been released. Police say he is believed to have tried to bomb a Northern Line subway train.

Another suspect arrested in London Friday has not been officially identified by police. British media have named him as Wahbi Mohammed and say he is Ramzi Mohammed's brother. He was arrested at an apartment near a park where a bomb similar to those that failed to explode was found on July 23rd. Italian police are holding a fifth suspect, identified by the Interior Ministry as Osman Hussein, originally from Ethiopia.

British police have traveled to Rome to question the man, suspected of planting a bomb on London's Hammersmith and City subway line. As the interrogations proceed, London police remain on high alert because authorities have warned that other undetected terrorist cells could be operating in the capital. The city of eight million residents has been on edge since July 7th, when four British Muslim suicide bombers killed 52 passengers on the capital's mass transit system. (Signed)
