Tube terror attack: 18 year-old, Ahmed Hassan 'made bucket bomb with material bought on Amazon

Hassan, an asylum seeker, charged with making TATP from Amazon ingredients

The teenage Parsons Green prime suspect made a bucket bomb packed with shrapnel, screws and knives and built it with ingredients bought on Amazon, a court heard today.

Iraqi asylum seeker Ahmed Hassan, 18, was motivated to unleash murder on the Tube because of his 'warped political views', it is alleged.

He entered the country illegally in 2015 and was put in foster care but before the terror attack he had 'expressed hatred for the UK government and society', the prosecution said.

Hassan is accused of attempting to murder people travelling on a District Line train last Friday after leaving a homemade bucket bomb by the doors and appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court today.

He allegedly bought ingredients online including from Amazon to make the explosive TATP, known as 'Mother of Satan'.
