Suspects in London bombing lived together at foster home

Two of the suspects arrested in the London subway bombing reportedly lived together at a foster care home that was raided over the weekend.

Cops in the London suburb of Hounslow busted 21-year-old Yahyah Farroukh outside a fried chicken shop, according to the Guardian, after police apprehended his 18-year-old accomplice while he was trying to escape the UK through the port city of Dover.

Both men are accused of planting a bomb at the Parsons Greens station during Friday’s rush hour commute.

The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack.

An apparent Facebook page for Farroukh identified him as a native of Damascus in Syria.

Farroukh and the teen suspect, who hasn’t been identified, at one point lived together in the same foster home belonging to Ron and Penny Jones in Sunbury-on-Thames, the Guardian reported.

He was also living at a home in Stanwell, Surrey, which authorities searched Saturday. Neighbors said Farroukh had moved there more than a year ago.

“There would be men going in his house. There’s always cars coming and going. They all talk Arabic,” one neighbor told the Telegraph.

Neither of the men have been charged.

Prime Minister Theresa May on Sunday lowered Britain’s terror threat from critical to severe.
