One of the suspects told police the incidents in London on 21 July were just bomb hoaxes designed to frighten people, a court has heard.

This is the first time i'd heard of this and at first thought "yeh right" but then i remembered something else i saw a little while ago.

A news correspondent for Channel 4/ITN reported that one of the witnesses in court described seeing the carriage floor littered with nuts and pieces of bread which clearly came from the bombers rucksack after the small explosion. Unfortunately i can't find any inkling of this on the net and was hoping that perhaps someone had some more info on this.

even if it was, they should be sent down. They have said in their 'defence' that they were trying to scare people?

WHY???????

Because they are sick? Mentally unstable. What-ever the real reason, they should be put away for a long time IMO.

I agree.

However, if it was no more than a sick stunt and their so called explosives were no more than some elaborate birthday cakes, surely this should be made public knowledge. And if its true it would be obvious that someone either in the intelligence services, government or more likely both is behind their own terror stunt. And IMO planting evidence and deceiving the public should be treated far more severely than a disgusting publicity stunt.

This is may be it.


Alone in the carriage with Mr Mohammed, the fireman shouted to him: "What have you done? What have you done?"

He said yesterday: "I thought he was actually in pain. I thought he was a victim. He said: 'This is wrong, this is wrong.' He was gesturing to the debris on the floor. There was a large amount of debris. He was gesturing to it and saying: 'This is wrong, it's wrong.'

"I said: 'What's that?' And he said: 'This is bread.' It was nonsensical, it didn't make any sense to me. I was shouting at him, probably being quite vociferous, I was probably swearing. I was scared."

Reading that, it's possible that i may have jumped the gun. However i'm pretty certain that a witness was quoted as saying there were bread and nuts all over the carriage.

I think the "bread" he referred to was the explosive mixture leaking out of the rucksack after the detonator had damaged it but failed to set off the explosive itself.

Is this a prank? I find that very hard to believe. What an absolutely stupid way to make a political point so shortly after the July 7th attacks. If (and it's a big 'if') this was a prank, they surely realised that they risked being shot by armed police thinking this was a real attack. And if it was a fake attack, why did one of the men involved flee the country dressed in a burqa and head to Italy? Their defence simply doesn't make any sense, and I'm not even a lawyer.

If they are found guilty then it simply means they'll go to prison for a long time, probably life (literally).
