Catching The Chemist

Egyptian authorities arrested the chemist sought by British investigators after last week's bombings in London:

Egyptian police on Friday arrested an Egyptian biochemist sought in the probe into the London bombings, an Egyptian government official said. Metropolitan Police in London said a man has been arrested in Cairo, but they would not confirm his name or characterize him as a suspect.

Magdy el-Nashar was arrested in Cairo early Friday, the Egyptian official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because an official announcement of the information had not yet been made.

That happened pretty quickly. Apparently Nashar made a mistake thinking that he could find shelter in Egypt. The Muslim Brotherhood and its al-Qaeda allies must not have as much popularity as they once did in the North African nation -- but we hear that's going around these days.
