4 Tuesday, 8 September 2009 London Lite HIDDEN CAMERA REVEALS INTRICATE DETAILS OF HOW Bombers hatched plan in this flat inLondon Keysuspect freeincity Seven jumbos were the target BY GEORGINA LITTLEJOHN LIQUID TERROR PLOT Continued from Page 1 an east London terror cell, were found guilty yesterday of planning to smuggle liquid explosive bombs on to flights. Scotland Yard has raided Al Ghabras flat in Forest Gate, where he lives with his mother and sister, looking for explosives and weapons. Today his mother said he had left home after being hounded by police and spies. She added: My son has done nothing wrong. I have no idea where he is living now. Im not the police or a spy so I dont know how to find him. Anti-terror sources have said Al Ghabra, 29, helped to arrange for members of the airliner gang to fly to training camps in Pakistan. He has also been linked to the failed 21/7 bombings in 2005, and is named by the US government as someone who provides material and logistical support to al Qaeda. Al Ghabra, who was held in Belmarsh prison for nine months before being cleared of fraud and possessing a document that could be useful to terrorists, has denied being a banker responsible for financing Pakistan training missions. High security: Belmarsh prison where Al Ghabra was held for nine months THE airline bombers plotted the atrocity that was intended to eclipse 9/11 from a rundown flat in east London. They paid 138,000 for the re-possessed address at 386A Forest Road, Walthamstow, and were in the process of converting it into a bomb factory when police struck. When officers searched the kitchen they found empty bottles of Oasis and Lucozade -- intended as the containers for liquid bombs to be detonated in mid-air over American cities. The contents of the bottles had been carefully emptied through tiny circular holes drilled in their base so the bottles seal caps would not be disturbed. Secret footage shows Abdulla Ahmed Ali and Tanvir Hussain inside the prop- erty preparing the bottles. Anti-terrorist police and MI5 concealed a camera and listening devices inside the flat in the summer of 2006 as they closed in on the gang. Grainy black-and-white footage from the camera was shown to jurors at Woolwich crown court. It revealed Ali and Hussain using a power drill to make a hole in the base of a soft drink bottle. The film was shot using a fish-eye lens from ankle height. A second camera, hidden across the street, captured the men arriving and leaving the Forest Road flat. Fingerprints and DNA samples from the two men were found on some of the bottles. In the same cupboard were four packets of Tang, in orange, mango, pineapple and grape flavours. The bombers planned to use the powdered soft drink as a fuel for the explosive and disguise it with food colouring to make the liquid bombs resem- ble ordinary soft drinks. The bombs were to consist of two seg- ments -- with the main charge contained THE terrorists plotted to use liquid bombs in an attempt to kill thousands of people and match the carnage of September 11. The three ringleaders planned to plant 18 suicide bombers on seven United Airlines, American Airlines and Air Canada jumbo jets travelling from Heathrow to Washington DC, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Montreal and Toronto. Once 30,000ft in the air and across the Atlantic, they planned to detonate their bombs using liquids in Lucozade bottles, which would have been assembled on board by the bombers, setting the bombs off over the course of four hours. Authorities would have been left powerless to stop the destruction once the first bomb exploded. Police found enough explosives to build 18 detonators and enough hydrogen peroxide to make at least 20 bottle bombs disguised as soft drinks. Thousands on board the planes would have been killed instantly, but the gang hoped to kill many more -- up to 5,000 people -- on the ground. A senior intelligence source said: This was one of the biggest threats we have ever had to meet in the UK.
