The two suspects in the London subway attack that injured 30 people are a refugee from Iraq and a native of Syria — both of whom were fostered by a couple once honored by Queen Elizabeth for their charitable work.

Local media named one of the men as Yahyah Farroukh, 21, who was collared late Saturday outside a fried chicken joint where he worked for nine months in the Hounslow area of west London.

Photos published by The Sun newspaper showed him being captured outside Aladdins Fried Chicken.

“I’m sorry! I’m sorry!” he allegedly yelled as undercover cops pinned him, causing a pile of Kit Kats and chocolates to spill out of his bag, the paper reported.

“A forensic team wrapped his arms in plastic up to his biceps and his legs up to his thighs,” a witness told the paper. “He looked like he didn’t speak much English but he was responding to what they were saying.”
