British Minister Denies Bomb Suspects Arrested Previously
13 July 2005 -- France and Britain found themselves again at odds today, this time about last week's London terrorist bombings.
He was reacting to a statement by French Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy, who said earlier today that some of the suspected bombers were arrested in 2004.
Clarke later told Britain's Sky News: "It's completely untrue. I am absolutely staggered he should make that assertion."
