The remains of one of the London suicide bombers who struck on 7 July have been buried in Leeds.

Hasib Hussain, who exploded a device on a bus in Tavistock Square, was buried in a private ceremony near his family's home in Leeds on Wednesday afternoon.

About 40 people attended the service which took place in a part of the graveyard reserved for Muslims.

Hasib Hussain, 18, from the Holbeck area of Leeds was the youngest of the four London bombers.

Police at cemetery

Witnesses to Wednesday's service say the mourners circled the grave reading prayers and then pushed earth into it before walking away.

Police officers patrolled the edge of the cemetery.

Hasib Hussain is the second of the bombers to be buried.

Last week, the body of the Aldgate bomber Shehzad Tanweer, from Beeston in Leeds, was buried at a village in Pakistan.

Funerals have yet to be held for Mohammad Sidique Khan and Jermaine Lindsay.

The four killed 52 people on the London transport system on 7 July.
