| Email spying 'could have stopped killers'

| Millions of personal email and mobile phone records could be stored
| and shared with police and intelligence officials across Europe to
| help thwart terrorist attacks.
| The Home Secretary, Charles Clarke, will propose new measures at an
| emergency meeting of European Union interior ministers which will
| discuss the implications of Thursday's London bombings.
| He raised the stakes dramatically by claiming they could 'quite
| possibly' have helped prevent such attacks, by identifying in advance
| suspicious patterns of behaviour by potential terrorists.
| The move comes as The Observer can also reveal that the National Crime
| Squad has contacted internet service providers in the UK, appealing
| for them to preserve email messages in case they prove useful to the
| manhunt. The messages could include highly personal information.
