LONDON, Nov 1 (Reuters) London's police force was found guilty today of putting the public at risk over the killing of an innocent Brazilian mistaken for a suicide bomber in 2005, BBC television reported.

Electrician Jean Charles de Menezes, 27, was gunned down as he boarded a London Underground train in south London on July 22, 2005, by officers who had wrongly identified him as one of four men who tried to attack the city's transport system a day earlier.
