They've caught one -- and now they're looking for three more. British police confirm that they arrested one of the four men who they think tried to carry out a series of bus and subway bombings last week in London.

Yasin Hassan Omar was arrested by police who stormed a duplex in
Birmingham today and subdued him with a stun gun. The raid in Britain's second-largest city was carried out by dozens of anti-terrorist police and bomb-disposal experts.

Omar is a Somali citizen with British residency. He'd been identified as one of the four men whose photos were released by police last week -- an image captured by security cameras.

Police today released a second photo of one of the men. The first showed him in the subway -- and the new one shows him on a bus, after he apparently had taken off the shirt he was wearing. Police are hoping to hear from anyone who may have found the shirt.
