Liverpool bomber carried out attack after his asylum bids were repeatedly turned down



Remembrance Day bomber Emad Jamil Al-Swealmeen decided to carry out a bomb attack after his asylum bids were repeatedly turned down, it emerged last night.



The 32-year-old blew himself up in a taxi at the Liverpool Women’s Hospital on Sunday, Nov. 14, after the taxi driver David Perry, 43, locked him up in the car to stop him from getting out to harm others with the bomb. David Perry was injured in the explosion but survived by a "miracle".



Emad Jamil Al-Swealmeen, who had no known connections with any terrorist groups, blew himself to bits with a home-made ball-bearing device.



He had taken a taxi from his bomb lair home to the local Liverpool Women’s Hospital.



CCTV footage captured the moment the device was detonated seconds after cabbie David Perry pulled up in front of the main entrance at 10.59 am.







Because of Al-Swealmeen’s severe injuries, it took police several hours to establish a potential identity.



It's been revealed that Al-Swealmeen had mental health problems and was once arrested with a knife.



It remained unclear when exactly the bomber entered the UK but it was understood he had been in a long-term dispute with the Home Office over his application for UK residential status.



And he had not been granted leave to remain in the UK permanently.Latest Post
