I had flashbacks to the St. Michelle bombings in the 90's. I lived right there, not five minutes from the bombings. They packed the gas cylinders (small ones, used for camping) in backpacks with nails, bolts and screws.

The backpacks were used on metro trains, main target was the metro going under the Seine river so that a large portion of the metro tunnels would flood and kill all the commuters at rush hour. Luckily they detonated one stop short of the river, but not so lucky for the killed and injured. It would have been thousands.

The people there haven't forgotten. I'm guessing that the landlord, neighbor or relative waited until they were out of town and loaded their car with the canisters to get them away from them and into the hands of the police. And the location they left them at was a clear indication of what they were to be used for due to the bombing history there. I wonder if the police found empty backpacks or sacks of nails in their apartment?

They shouldn't have let them go imho.

Of course the terrorist had a car full of completely empty gas bottles:-/ and there was no explosion

You mean the attempted bombing of the Tiger Tiger nighclub in London full of fun people. You know, the types of women the jihadists really hate (too old probably). Previously the Ministry of Sound was a target.

Anyway, here's asome of links.

BBC - 2006 Ministry of Sound
The Guardian - 2007 carbomb report
Wiki 2007 car bombings

Peter Clarke, the Scotland Yard head of counter-terrorism, confirmed in a short statement at 8.45pm that a second Mercedes also had a "considerable amount" of explosive material and nails.

It may be nothing, but people who hate the West have form with car bombs.
