The suspected ringleader of the July 7 London suicide bombers visited Israel for a day in 2003. Citing an Israeli official, Reuters reported Monday that Mohammad Sidique Khan arrived in Israel on Feb. 19, 2003, and left the next day. The revelation gave weight to speculation that Khan may have helped to plan an April 30, 2003, suicide bombing by two fellow British Muslims at a Tel Aviv beachfront bar, which killed three Israelis.
