Bombers may have bonded on rafting trip :: Yorkshire Post
Technique common amongst corporate management teams

Investigating the new links, police know that Yorkshire suicide bombers Mohammed Sidique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer, part of the July 7 terrorist cell, took part in a two-hour whitewater rafting trip in Wales on June 4.

Now it has emerged a second group of Asian men enjoyed the facilities at Canolfan Tryweryn, the National Whitewater Centre, in Bala, North Wales, on the same day. Police have discovered some people among the second group were named on electoral rolls at suspect addresses, including some raided after last Thursday's attack.

The wilderness of the area would have provided a perfect meeting place for leaders of the two terror cells to make final preparations on the timing of attacks and police are understood to be keen to find out where they stayed during the visit.

It is believed the original cell comprised Khan -- shown in pictures of the trip raising a two-fingered peace sign -- together with Tanweer and two men from the July 21 attack. They then split up to form their own terror gangs from their own areas.
