Parsons Green attack trial: ISIS lad's 'Amazon bomb kit'

Some 93 passengers scrambled to get off the District Line train after a wall of flames engulfed their carriage during rush hour on September 15 previous year, with witnesses describing a fireball melting clothes, singeing hair, and causing awful burns.

The court heard how Hassan seized a "window of opportunity" to prepare a home-made bomb while his foster parents were on holiday in early September past year.

'The bucket containing the device had been loaded with pieces of shrapnel, that is, metal objects created to be propelled out of the device during the explosion, causing maximum harm and carnage to those in the surrounding area, ' Miss Morgan said.

Hassan, from Sunbury-on-Thames, denies attempted murder and causing an explosion.

She said: "Had the device fully detonated it is inevitable that serious injury and significant damage would have been caused within the carriage".

Hassan arrived in the United Kingdom in October 2015 and claimed asylum after travelling through the Channel Tunnel on a lorry with no identity documents.

The prosecution told the court Hassan packed a bomb with screwdrivers, knives and nails to cause "maximum carnage".

He played two minutes and scored two points before leaving with an injury. "If he's healthy, we're rolling", Martin added. Porter Jr. later underwent surgery in Dallas. "Unless the trainer or Mike says otherwise, he's playing".

He denies that he was sent to Europe to commit acts of terror.

Hassan set a crude timing device and got off the train at Putney Bridge station, the stop before Parsons Green.

Months after the interview, a Barnado's staff member who spoke Arabic allegedly caught him listening to an Islamic nasheed [song], with words to the effect of: "We are coming with you to the slaughter in your home/country".

He researched online how to make explosives, ordering an ingredient on Amazon and using a friend's address to take delivery of the largest component.

The defendant allegedly left his home shortly before 7am and took the overground train from Sunbury to Wimbledon, passing schoolchildren and commuters on his way to the District Line interchange.

Prosecutor Alison Morgan: "At any point, should he have wanted to, he could have stopped the timer". He could have pulled the wires out of the device.

She told the jury she heard a bang, and then people screaming.

Aimee Colville saw "shards of glass flying through the air and then flames".

One woman tearfully told the court how she jumped from the Tube and felt her hands and face burning as her coat caught fire, the Press Association reported.

"There was a blinding flash to my left and I was engulfed in flames", Mr. Nash said.

The jury was shown CCTV footage of Hassan on 14 September - the day before the attack - allegedly buying material for shrapnel for the bomb from Asda in Feltham, before cycling to an Aldi supermarket.

She added that there were 93 people in the carriage when the bomb exploded.

The main charge may have failed to explode because the initiator was not sufficiently embedded in the TATP, or because the TATP had been poorly made, the court has heard.
