well there's been no mention of any detonation device and all those things can be explained away. By the way when they said 60 litres of petrol in the car I think they are including the fuel tank as I think that's roughly that vehicles capacity. EDIT: they just said in addition to the fuel tanks. So that leaves 2 gas cylinders.

The Bomb Squad said it was 'a potentially viable explosive device' that's not exactly rigged to blow is it?

And if they're looking for suicide car bombers why are swooping on stationary cars in the rich / elite sectors of town?

Yep Rock Ape,

Just on BBC "police say car in Park lane near Hyde Park could be linked to the car bomb found earlier"

At the moment the police are live on BBC using a robot to examine the vehicle... though they are now saying "it of interest but unlikely tobe a bomb"

You know, this is spooky. The fan belt on my car just broke. I suspect this is to do with Gordon Browns first day in office. HE is responsible

Damn Brits! How soon you forget - it's Bush's fault!

Riiiight...


Well then who would be the light-skinned turban-less man in the original image then?


I wouldn't be surprised now if a few cars like this show up in a US city and actually go off and of course it will be that damned Al Qaeda again!!!!

Peace

Well *I* would be surprised if it happened. But if it did happen, I would not be surprised that al Qaeda was at fault!

Well said charlie, unlike Flyerfans I think I'll wait until the facts become available before over dramatising the situatiion and jumping to conclusions. Like I said whats been reported on the news is speculation. Some people I guess just cant help but believe everything they see & hear on the news.


With the amount of CCTV cameras in this country, especially in London, the police must have some idea by now whose responsible. Surely releasing the footage to the public would help catch the culprits alot quicker, unless of course the individuals are already known to the police.

It WASNT 'packed' with anything of the sort. according to BBC news there was one gas bottle and some petrol. The nails were on the floor.

now Regent St and Picadilly Circus are both nearby. We're in Top London shopping zone here.

CCTV operators of the larger department stores in the area can not only follow potential shoplifters around their store with CCTV but they can link in to the CCTV in the street to see where they go, if they have accomplices etc and what the next store is they go into and alert them. I've seen this on TV documentaries a fairly long time back now 7 years+ and the CCTV surge has happened since.

and yet all we have so far is 'a shadow seen running from the car'.

It does seem like a very simplistic bomb, but nowadays it seems that every terrorist plan that seem's sophisticated get's thwarted in it's early stage's. My opinion is that there are alot of terrorists that are going to be making these simple household bombs to evade all the intelligence agencies in the very near future.

I do believe that there are much more sinister plot's out there being planned if not ready at this very second , but for the typical "Joe Schmo" terrorist simple is better.

Man,

that police officer is a hero who risked his life by removing the trigger from the bomb

Hours before London explosives technicians dismantled a large car bomb in the heart of the British capital's tourist-rich theater district, a message appeared on one of the most widely used jihadist Internet forums, saying: "Today I say: Rejoice, by Allah, London shall be bombed."

CBS News found the posting, which went on for nearly 300 words, on the "al Hesbah" chat room. It was left by a person who goes by the name abu Osama al-Hazeen, who appears regularly on the forum.

Al Hesbah is frequently used by international Sunni militant groups, including al Qaeda and the Taliban, to post propaganda videos and messages in their fight against the West.

I just found this. What do people make of it?

It is alleged that they did this because of Salmon Rushdie's knighting.

Hats off to him.

well sunni would kind of suggest a confirmation of the link with Iraq mentioned earlier but only on the surface and the chat room thing well anyone could do that right? Shouldn't we be seeing their pre-suicide video things they always do? That would be more concrete but of course they're not dead yet...

TV news here is saying that the devices were to be detonated by remote control via cell phone. Evidence of this was found.

According to our news here it was enough petrol to fill the trunk - 60 ltrs. That is more than 'some'. AND the nails were packed in.

TV news here is now reporting that more than one person was seen exiting the vehicle.

Very interesting find! It could be connected, or it could be a coincidence.

blah blah personal dig blah blah ..


I'm not 'jumping to conclusions'. The Brits have said it was a car bomb and that it had a remote trigger via cell phone. Now they are saying the second vehicle is related to the first. I'm not 'jumping to conclusions'. I'm telling ya' what the TV news is saying.

Funny how this has been found just as the new prime minister comes to power. come on Brown, wheel out the old "terror threat" so you can soap box your "shoulder to shoulder" with the US.

Sorry but the English arent as scared as the americans, weve been dealing with terrorists for decades now what with the IRA etc.

Same old tricks for instill fear......

And yet the terror alert level has not gone up? why not?

There was a bomb plot the authorities were tracking about bombs in underground car parks like hotels and the big NCP car park under Hyde Park. That's been mentioned a few times over recent months.
