A jury at the trial of six men accused of attempting to detonate bombs on London's transit system were shown a video Tuesday of one of the suspects fleeing the capital dressed in a burqa. Yassin Omar was captured on closed circuit television at London's Golders Green bus station and later at Digbeth coach station in Birmingham, 160 kilometers miles north of London, disguised in the traditional Muslim woman's dress. The six men were arrested after alleged attacks on July 21, two weeks after four suicide bombers killed 52 people on the transit system. Omar and the other five defendants - Muktar Said Ibrahim, 29; Adel Yahya, 24; Manfu Asiedu, 33; Hussain Osman, 28; and Ramzi Mohamed, 25 - have all denied charges of conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to cause explosions likely to endanger life.
