One of the suspects in the failed London bombings will appear in court tomorrow accused of conspiracy to murder.

Yassin Omar is alleged to have tried to detonate a bomb on the tube at Warren Street on July 21.

A spokesman for Scotland Yard said Omar was charged with conspiring with others to "murder passengers on the Transport for London system".

A second charge says he "unlawfully or maliciously made or had in his possession or under his control an explosive substance with intent by means thereof to endanger life or cause serious injury to property".

The 24-year-old was arrested in Birmingham on July 27.

Omar was also charged with the attempted murder of passengers on the transport system and conspiring with others before July 21 to use explosives to endanger life.

The spokesman said Omar will appear tomorrow at Bow Street Magistrates Court, London.

Omar, a Somalian, was felled with a stun gun when officers stormed the safehouse in Birmingham where he was hiding.

All four of the would-be suicide bomb suspects are currently being held by detectives.

Muktar Said-Ibrahim, 27, accused of the failed Hackney bus bombing, and Ramzi Mohammed, suspected of attempting the Oval tube bombing, were captured in raids in west London on July 29.

Italian police captured Hussain Osman, alleged to be the would-be bomber of a train at Shepherd's Bush, west London, in Rome.

Yesterday, three men were remanded in custody charged under anti-terror laws in connection with the July 21 attacks.

Shadi Abdel Gadir, 22, and Omar Nagmeloin Almagboul, 20, both of Dyke Road, Brighton, and Mohamed Kabashi, 23, of Mary Magdalene Road, Brighton, were accused of failing to disclose information about the failed bombings.

They appeared at Horseferry Road Magistrates' Court, central London.

A total of six people have now been charged under the Terrorism Act with failing to disclose information that could have helped police investigating the July 21 attacks.

The others are Hussain's wife, Yeshshiembet Girma, 28, her sister Muluemebet Girma, 21, and Ismael Abdurahman, 23, from Kennington, who was the first person to be charged.
