The attempted bombings were two weeks after fatal attacks on 7 July
The court hearing of four men accused of the failed 21 July London Tube bombings has been postponed.

Ibrahim Muktar Said, 27, Ramzi Mohamed, 23, Manfo Kwaku Asiedu, 32, and Yassin Omar, 24, are charged with conspiracy to murder and explosives offences.

They were due to appear at the Old Bailey on 14 November, but the date has been changed to 8 December, after an application by prosecutors.

It is alleged the men tried to detonate bombs on three Tube trains and a bus.

Mr Omar, of New Southgate, London has been accused of the attempted bombing of a Victoria Line train, near Warren Street.

Ibrahim Muktar Said, of Stoke Newington, north London, is suspected of the failed Hackney bus bombing and Ramzi Mohamed is suspected of the attempted Oval Tube bombing.

Manfo Kwaku Asiedu, of Finsbury Park, north London, is charged over an unexploded device found at Little Wormwood Scrubs park in west London, two days after the failed bombings.

A fifth man, Hussain Osman, 27, also known as Hamdi Issac, was arrested in Italy a week after the attacks and is awaiting extradition.

He is accused of trying to blow up Shepherd's Bush Tube.

The failed attacks took place two weeks to the day after four suicide bombers killed 52 passengers on the London transport network.
