Stunned familes of 7/7 victims see first images of suicide bombers in the moments before they brought carnage to Tube

According to The Daily mail, 11 April 2008:

Stunned familes of 7/7 victims see first images of suicide bombers in the moments before they brought carnage to Tube

The Mail reports that, on 10 April 2008, video of the moments two of the alleged July 7 suicide bombers allegedly brought death and carnage to London were shown for the first time to a court.

1. One sequence showed "Hasib Hussain, 19, bending over his rucksack as he seems to suffer a technical hitch with his bomb's trigger device."

No proof here that Hussain had a bomb or was intending to kill people.

2. Hussain "then strolls into a branch of W H Smith, apparently to buy a new battery for the device, before mingling with passers-by outside Kings Cross Tube station."

No proof here that Hussain had a bomb or was intending to kill people.

3. "Hussain then explodes his bomb on the No 30 bus at Tavistock Square and pictures from another camera show two people blown from their seats in a nearby building."

Note that the pictures do not show Hussain 'exploding his bomb'. The pictures show two people blown from their seats.

The Times reported a little more accurately:

"The jury watched Hussain who, the prosecution said, appeared to have suffered a technical hitch with his bomb. He was seen buying an item, said to be a battery, from WH Smith in King’s Cross station.

"Wearing sunglasses, he leaves the station and briefly visits a McDonald’s.

"Minutes later cameras from the British Medical Association in Tavistock Square show a number 30 bus shortly before Hussain detonates his bomb on the upper desk. Pictures from a bus just ahead show panicking passengers struggling to get off as they see the vehicle behind them explode."

4. "Another sequence shows passengers at Aldgate station moving from the platform into the train where student Shehzad Tanweer, 22, is (allegedly?) waiting to explode his bomb.

"Soon, the busy platform is empty and the train pulls out of the station. Thirty seconds later, a bright flash of light is seen in the tunnel into which the train has just disappeared. This is fast followed by clouds of dust which obscure the camera view for a few moments.

"Those few still on the platform run away and it is deserted until police officers race into view."

No video of Tanweer getting on the train or exploding a bomb.

According to : J7 Profile: Hasib Mir Hussain

"Hasib Hussain was reported to have been making the phone calls whilst walking down a street at 9am, and also sitting in McDonalds having a meal at 9am.

"Yet when a CCTV image of him was released on the day after the Bali bombings, exiting a chemist’s onto the main concourse of Kings Cross station, the timestamp at the bottom was 9am. According to other reports, Kings Cross was already being evacuated by 9am.

"A passenger on the bus, Richard Jones, described how an ‘agitated young man’ rummaging in a small bag had made him decide to leave the bus between stops, just before the bus exploded.

"However, it is clear that the man Richard Jones saw could not possibly have been Hasib Hussain, not just because Richard Jones says he was on the bottom deck of the bus whereas the bomb was at the back of the upper deck, but because the description he gave of the young man that he saw does not match the physical description of Hasib as given by the police and shown in the CCTV pictures which were released.

"Another oddity is that Hasib was identified due to the apparently unique injuries sustained by suicide bombers due to the explosives they strap on to their bodies. It is perhaps strange that he would have been identified by these unique injuries caused by strap on explosives when it was stated that he was carrying his bomb in a rucksack."
