Getaway in a burqa

The week's news at a glance.

London

One of the men accused of plotting to blow up trains in London in 2005 had fled the city disguised as a woman, prosecutors at his trial said this week. The 6-foot-2 Yassin Omar, 26, was videotaped by a security camera wandering through a London bus station clad in a burqa. Omar and five others are accused of planting bombs on subway trains just two weeks after four suicide bombers killed 52 people on trains and a bus. In the latter planned attack, the bombs did not go off.
