UK police deny report of arrest over London blasts

LONDON (Reuters) - British police denied a media report on
Sunday that they had arrested one person in northern England in
connection with the July 7 bombings in London.

"The earlier report of another arrest was inaccurate. It
came out amid the confusion of the arrests in West Yorkshire,"
a London police spokesman said.

He was referring to the arrests of six men under
anti-terrorism laws on Sunday which police said were not
directly linked to the bombings in London, which killed 55
