“CAIRO, Egypt — Egypt said Tuesday that a detained chemist wanted by Britain for questioning about the London bombings had no links to the July 7 attacks . . .
Egypt's leading pro-government newspaper, Al-Ahram, quoted a senior security official as saying el-Nashar's innocence was revealed in questioning.
"Through interrogations carried out by Egypt, the British side was assured that el-Nashar has no role in the explosions," the newspaper quoted the unidentified official as saying.
Al-Ahram had earlier quoted an unidentified security source as saying el-Nashar told investigators he rented a house to Hasib Hussain, the 18-year-old bomber of the double-decker bus. British police searched el-Nashar's Leeds home after reportedly finding traces of explosives in his bathtub.”
