7-15-05 - LONDON (AP) Police say a man they've been looking for in the London bombing investigation has been arrested in Egypt. Government officials in Cairo say they are holding the chemist.
The Egyptian-born man briefly studied in North Carolina.
An Egyptian official says Magdi el-Nashar is being interrogated by authorities there. London police will only say an arrest has
been made in Cairo but do not say he is a suspect.
The FBI had gotten involved in the search for el-Nashar, who was a graduate student at North Carolina State in 2000, and had been teaching chemistry at Leeds University.
His neighbors there tell The Times of London that el-Nashar had recently left the country, saying he had a visa problem.
