Terrorists linked to Al Qaeda

finally strike London.

Thousands of police officers

are involved in a hunt for

the people who tried to bomb

the London underground

and a bus, among

them armed officers

who have been told they

can now shoot on sight

suspected suicide bombers.

Train is due in one minute.

Suspect is preparing to board.

Blooming hell.

Repeat. Suspect is preparing

to board. Should I detain?

Request instructions.

Hold position.

Go commander.

She's bull dog.

Suspect is about to

board a crowded commuter train.

I need instruction. I need

it five blooming minutes ago.

Please respond.


Tell them...

Tell them to keep him off the tube.

Deadly force is authorised.

Bulldog. This is Operations.

You are clear to go.

Deadly force is authorised. Repeat.

Deadly force is authorised.

Police, open the gate.

Police, move. Police, get out

of the way. Move. Police. Move.

Police, move it, move.

Get out of the way. Move.

That way.

Move. Police, move out of the way.

Move, Police. Police.

Get out of the way,

Police. Get out the way, move.

That's him. Get down. Get down.

Armed police. Put your

hands above your head.

Drop to your knees. Do it.

Hands above your head.

Now. Don't.

Okay. Okay, good. Where is it?

Here. What's this?


It's a music player,

like a walkman, sir.

I know what it is.

I do have grandchildren.

What a mess.

Begging your pardon, sir,

but I don't see that it is a mess.


Open your eyes. What

does that tell you?

Bloody media. Never there

when we do something right.

Meaning we're in

the wrong this time?

No, sir. Slip of the tongue.

What do we know for certain?

The suspect, Baqir Hassan emerged

from the residence

we were surveying.

We had intelligence

that terrorist activity

- was being conducted there.

- Intelligence?

An anonymous tip was called in.

Can we trace the call?

We're trying, but they don't

exactly leave their details.

What they could, they did on him.

Commander. Any minute now,

I will be getting a call

from our new

Commissioner of Police

and I will have to

inform him that

only six weeks into

his administration

we've already

managed to lay a huge


scandal on his doorstep.

Perhaps, levity is not in your

best interest at this moment.

Sir, sorry.

This, D.I. Marber, is it?

What does he have to say?

The suspect didn't respond to

a lawful order to surrender.

Because he couldn't hear it?

Or he willingly chose to

ignore it? Who's to say?

The I.P.C.C. I would imagine.

With all due respect, sir.

D.I. Marber and his officers

followed policy to the letter.

They did. And now it looks

as if Scotland Yard has

declared war upon

innocent civilians.

If you wanted us...

Do you have

evidence to the contrary?

Oh, he was a Muslim.

Being a Muslim isn't a crime,

Commander. Not yet, anyway.

- Yes?

- Commissioner on the line for you, sir.

I will be with him right away.

What are you going to tell him?

The truth. That we're not

very sure at this point.

You can show yourself out.

John, the Commissioner is

keeping a close eye on us.

He's made it clear he

wants things sorted quickly.

Or someone in this

office will pay the price.

And I can assure you,

it will not be me.


Commissioner, I have it

right here. Yes, sir. I agree.

I think we've found our man.

Beg your pardon, sir. They

are waiting for you upstairs.

- Well, Tariq.

- Morning.

Are you okay about this?

I will give it my best.

I expect nothing less.

Morning, ladies and gentlemen.

Good morning.

My name is Tariq Ali

and first I will read
