One of the suicide bombers in the July 7 London terror attacks used to work for the British Department of Trade and Industry, the Independent newspaper reported on Saturday. Mohammad Sidique Khan, the article said, falsified the information on his resume in order to be hired for a government position. While working for the DTI, Khan allegedly recruited Shahzad Tanweer and Hasib Hussain for the terrorist mission. In November 2004, Khan and Tanweer left England for Pakistan, where they trained for the suicide bombing. Khan killed seven people when he detonated his explosive load on July 7 in the Edgware Road Underground Station in London.
