Global Terror: Don't Believe The Hype

Two days after a man was shot as armed officers stormed the house in Lansdown Road, Forest Gate, a search has failed to yield any evidence of a bomb.

Investigators from the police watchdog are trying to resolve sharply conflicting accounts of how a 23-year-old man was hit in the shoulder by a police bullet when the house was raided at 4am on Friday. Officers have said that a shot went off accidentally during a struggle on the stairs of the house. The injured man says he was shot without warning.
At a news conference yesterday morning, the RCMP displayed a sample of ammonium nitrate and a crude cell phone detonator they say was seized in the massive police sweep when the 17 were taken into custody. However, they made no mention of the police force's involvement in the sale.
