British radicals launched attack
London bombers 'were all British'
Armed police during the raids
Detectives now believe the London bombings were carried out by four British-born men in what were possibly the country's first suicide attacks.
Security sources said it was likely at least three of the men, said to be of Pakistani descent, are dead, after belongings were found at the scenes.
The details emerged as explosives were found in Leeds and Luton after a series of raids. One man has been arrested.
The BBC's Frank Gardner said an expert may have offered the bombers guidance.
The security correspondent said the suspected bombers - one of whom is thought to have been as young as 19 - may have been helped by someone who would have left the country before the bombs went off.
Uh, this is what we would call a major fucking problem.
As I said, someone let these lunatics fill their heads with this nonsense and now people are dead, lots of people. The idea that these guys were born and raised in the UK, has scared the shit out of everyone. I thought they were recent immigrants. So I think a lot of us was wrong, and it's time to look very hard as to why these guys would do this and why they think it made sense.
