The United States can take a note from the London bombings in 2005 by having more security cameras on the streets, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani told Bloomberg TV.

Giuliani was in Liverpool the day of the bombings that rocked London in July 2005, killing 52 people and injuring more than 700. He pointed out that although it took a few days for the police there to apprehend the suspects, they had already zeroed in on them within hours due to video surveillance.

“It took them a couple of days like this to get them, but the cameras were focused, the cameras were usable, they had all the information computerized. [It was] a much more efficient system than even they have in New York today,” he said.

FBI and Boston police relied on security cameras and photos to find the suspects. They identified brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as suspects Thursday, and during the night got into a gunfight, killing Tamerlan, 26. A police officer from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology died, as well.

Dzhokhar, 19, was captured, wounded and bleeding, hiding beneath a white plastic cover protecting a boat in the backyard of a house in Watertown. The city of Boston and surrounding suburbs were eerily silent all day as people were instructed to stay at home and inside while authorities looked for the younger brother.
