Suspects in London bombing lived together at foster home

The home of Yahyah Farouk whose cousin said he was not religious was raided yesterday

Video obtained by the Sun appeared to show forensic officers gathering evidence as Farroukh was held against the shutters of the neighbouring pharmacy.

Farroukh's arrest came after an 18-year-old unnamed chief suspect was detained at Dover ferry port on Saturday, hours after the explosion on the packed rush-hour carriage at Parsons Green subway station injured some 30 people.The attack was claimed by the Islamic State terror group.

Suleman Sarwar, one of the eatery's owners, said Farroukh "never mentioned anything about ISIS".

"I'm sorry! I'm sorry!" he allegedly yelled as undercover cops pinned him, causing a pile of Kit Kats and chocolates to spill out of his bag, the paper reported.

"He was very normal".

"I know about two weeks ago he was arrested by police at Parsons Green, for what I don't know and returned back to Penny and Ron", she told the Daily Mail. "It was surprising seeing him on the news".

LEAFY Parsons Green in West London became the latest scene of terror in the capital when it was attacked on 15 September 2018.

The witness said that police wrapped Farroukh in plastic and led him into a vehicle.

Asked if he was known to authorities, a spokesman for London's Metropolitan Police said: "I don't believe he was", Agence France-Presse reported.

The takeaway owner added he was sure Farroukh was Syrian because of his distinctive dialect.

A spokeswoman for the college said: "West Thames College confirms that Yahyah Farroukh, who, according to media reports is the second suspect detained in connection with the Parsons Green incident, was a former student at the college from December 2013 to June 2015".

Damascus-origin Yahyah Farouk was arrested outside a Halal fried chicken shop Aladdins in Hounslow, reports The Times.

He and the 18-year-old remain in custody as they are questioned on suspicion of terror offences.

Officers were also in the process of searching an address, understood to be Farroukh's home in nearby town of Stanwell, in Surrey, just metres from the outer boundaries of Heathrow airport.

Local council leader Ian Harvey said the 18-year-old was an Iraqi orphan who moved to the United Kingdom when he was 15 after his parents died, the BBC reported.

Leader of Spelthorne Borough Council Ian Harvey, whose ward is Sunbury East, said he learnt about the boy's background from neighbours of Mr and Mrs Jones and information available publicly. The younger suspect, who has not yet been identified, moved to Britain at age 15 after his parents died.
