Israeli authorities reportedly believe one of the London suicide bombers helped plan a similar attack on a Tel Aviv pub. Ma’ariv reported Sunday that Mohammad Sidique Khan, who British police named as the ringleader of the terrorist cell that struck the London transport system July 7, traveled to Israel in 2003 to plan the suicide bombing on the Mike’s Place pub. Three Israelis were killed in that attack, which was carried out by two British Muslims. Israeli security sources said the link between Khan and the Mike’s Place bombing had not been established beyond doubt.
