London bomber to accomplices:
"Hello, are you dead yet?"

One of the 7 July London bombers rang his fellow suicide attackers before his device went off, the BBC has learned. Hasib Hussain, 18, called his three accomplices on his mobile phone before killing 13 people on the No 30 bus. But Mohammad Sidique Khan, 30, Germaine Lindsay, 19, and Shehzad Tanweer, 22, had already killed themselves and 39 passengers on three Tube trains. [BBC]

Would a terrorist on a well planned mission phone his accomplices to see if they were dead?

A more logical reason for the phone calls:

There was an exercise in which these four men were participants. Unfortunately for them the exercise was real world and they were patsies.

Habib Hussain heard about bombs going off in London so he decided to phone the other patsies to find out what was going on. He got no replies to his calls and started to panic. He hurriedly looked in the rucksack he'd been given...

Passengers on the bus noticed a 6ft tall, olive-skinned man, thought to be aged in his early 20s, looking agitated and rummaging in a rucksack. [Times]

 ...and then there was a big bang.
