A SUICIDE squad linked to Dewsbury is believed to have been responsible for the London terror attacks.
Metropolitan Police and West Yorkshire officers yesterday raided two homes in Thornhill Lees, as well as homes in Leeds.
And they have confirmed that at least three of the bombers who committed mass murder in London came from West Yorkshire.
Property belonging to Mohammed Sadique Khan, 30, of Thornhill Lees, was found in the debris of the Edgeware Road Tube bomb.
He was a married man of Pakistani origin, married to Hasina.
Their baby girl is thought to be about eight months old. Khan originally lived in Beeston but moved to Lees Holm in Thornhill Lees about five months ago.
Neighbours said he worked with disabled children while his wife was involved in education.
His mother-in-law, Farida Patel, lives with her son Arshad nearby, in a house in Thornhill Park Avenue which was also believed to have been raided by police.
Outside Khan's home yesterday, a low-loader was used to remove a silver Honda Accord. The property remained clad in police scaffolding and white plastic sheeting today.
Shehzad Tanweer, 22, of Beeston, Leeds, was the son of a fish and chip shop owner. His property was recovered from the debris of the Aldgate bomb blast.
Hasib Mir Hussain, 19, lived with his family in Holbeck, Leeds.
It is thought he was the bomber on board the No 30 bus - ripped apart in Tavistock Square.
His family had actually reported him missing believing he had gone to London with friends.
The fourth man in the suicide squad is believed to be from Luton.
Today officers were still guarding the homes in Thornhill Park Avenue and Lees Holm where forensic teams and investigators are carrying out painstaking examinations.
Police guarded the front of the terrace property in Lees Holm and a marked police van blocked off the road, preventing people from visiting the scene.
Forensic investigators could be seen entering the house wearing masks and protective suits.
Neighbours on the council estate said an Asian couple lived there with a young baby daughter.
It is believed that the young girl was aged about eight or nine months, a resident said.
Neighbour Sara Aziz, 28, a mother of two children,
said: "I had a funny night last night. I had been up most of the night. About 7.30 yesterday morning I noticed police outside and saw the lady who lived there come out with a baby."
She said the couple originally came from Pakistan but had moved from Leeds.
"They seemed a right quiet couple," she said.
Mrs Aziz said the husband once mistakenly accused her of swearing at his wife.
She added: "Since that incident, he says `hi' and `bye'. She's been really quiet. He goes to the gym.
"The reason I say that is because I've seen him carrying a bag over his shoulders some mornings. She leaves the house about 8.30-9am. I don't think she works.
"They just keep themselves in. Once I was hanging my washing out. I tried to make conversation with the wife but she was having none of it. I saw him a lot more.
"She left with the police this morning wearing a veil. He wasn't there this morning. I last saw him last week," said Mrs Aziz.
Police believe the members of the West Yorkshire terror cell drove by car from Leeds to Luton last Thursday and then travelled to the capital where Met Police sources believe they blew themselves up killing at least 57 and injuring more than 700.
The attack is thought to be the first suicide terror bombing in Europe.
Another man, who is a relative of one of the terrorists but has not been identified, was arrested after four other dawn raids at houses in Leeds.
Deputy assistant commissioner Peter Clarke, head of Scotland Yard's anti-terrorist branch, said: "We are trying to establish their movements in the run-up to last week's attack and specifically to establish whether they all died in the explosions," he said.
"We know that all four of these arrived in London by train on the morning.
"One of them who had set out from West Yorkshire was reported missing by his family to the casualty bureau on July 7. We have been able to establish that he was joined on his journey to London by three other men.
"We have since found personal documents bearing the names of three of those four men close to the seats of three of the explosions."
The drama began early yesterday when police closed roads in the Beeston and Burley areas of Leeds and Thornhill Lees.
Speaking to the Examiner, a neighbour of the Lees Holm house said he was shocked. Retired Brian Townend said the area was multi-cultural and peaceful.
He added: "I cannot believe what is happening in my street. We all get on so well. I have Asian neighbours who are my friends and nothing will ever change that.
"I just hope that nobody stirs up any tension. Of course we never thought that anybody from around here would be involved but it goes to show that you never really know what goes on behind closed doors."
A car was also seized at Luton train station and several controlled explosions were carried out on explosives found in the vehicle.
Police have urged anyone with information to ring their anti-terrorist line on 0800 789 321.
Examiner columnist and former Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Keith Hellawell said today the fact the bombers lived in local communities which were unaware of their activities was "the nature of modern terrorism."
Speaking on GMTV today, he said: "They are people who have not been in trouble before who are good members of the community.
"But they are prepared to use all this hate and to sacrifice their lives."
"We do not know what is in their hearts and minds of these young people and why they bear this hatred.
"You don't need training to carry something on to a train or bus and detonate it.
