영국 당국은 런던 교통망에 대한 테러 미수범 네 명의 체포에도 불구하고 대대적인 대테러 작전은 멈추지 않을 것이라고 말했습니다.

경찰은 30일 런던과 로마에서 체포된 테러용의자들에 대한 심문을 시작했습니다. 당국은 이번 체포는 부상없이 건강한 상태의 테러용의자 세포조직을 완전하게 확보했다는 매우 드문 성과라고 말했습니다.

런던의 대테러전담반을 이끌고 있는 피터 클라크씨는 29일 경찰에 투항을 거부한 두 명의 테러범을 검거할때 일시적으로 범인들의 감각을 마비시키는 특수 수류탄과 최루탄을 사용하는 특수전술이 동원됐다고 밝혔습니다.

클라크씨는 테러 공격의 위험은 여전히 존재하고 있다면서 모든 영국인들은 경계태세를 늦추지 말 것을 촉구했습니다.

Authorities in Britain say there will be no letup (reduction) in their massive anti-terrorist operation despite the capture of four men suspected of trying to bomb London's transit system.

In London and Rome, police are beginning their interrogation of the suspects today (Saturday). Officials say the arrests appear to have given investigators a rare prize -- a full cell of alleged terrorists, captured alive and unharmed.

The head of London's anti-terrorist task force, Peter Clarke, says specialist tactics -- apparently stun grenades and tear gas -- were used to arrest two suspected bombers (Ibrahim Muktar Said and Ramzi Muhammad)
when they refused to surrender to police Friday.

In a separate operation in Rome (on Friday), Italian police arrested a third suspected bomber (Hussain Osman), said to be a British passport holder who was born in Ethiopia. Britain is asking for his extradition.

The fourth suspect (Yasin Hassan Omar) was apprehended on Wednesday in Birmingham.

Mr. Clarke says there is still risk of terrorist attacks, and he urged all Britons to remain alert as officials continue investigating this month's attacks -- four explosions on July 7 that killed more than 50 people and a failed attempt to detonate at least four more bombs two weeks later (July 21).
