July 14 Washington: America's
NBC News last night reported that Muslim Lindsay Germeine, one of the four suspects in last week's terrorist bombings in London,
was of Jamaican descent.
British police have raided homes in
the English city of Leeds, and last night NBC posted on its web site a story by correspondent Lisa Myers and the network's
investigative unit, pointing to potential Jamaican link to the attack that killed more than 50 people.
"Law enforcement officials tell NBC
News that police have tentatively identified the fourth suspected bomber as Lindsay Germeine, a Muslim of Jamaican descent
living in the area," NBC said.
Last night Jamaica's foreign ministry could add little in the way of confirmation or denial
of the claim.
"We have gleaned this information
from the media, but we are not in a position to verify it," said spokesman Wilton Dyer.
Three other Britons of Pakistani
descent have been identified among the bombers.
A fifth person seen on surveillance
tapes was identified by police as a suspect, but they were still attempting to determine is precise role, NBC News said.
