Parsons Green: Teenager Ahmed Hassan accused of buying parts on Amazon to build Tube bomb

A teenager is accused of buying the Parsons Green bomb from Amazon and filling it with knives and shrapnel with the intention of murdering dozens of rush hour commuters. Ahmed Hassan, 18, allegedly placed a bomb hidden in a Lidl bag and covered it with a pair of trousers on a District Line train and departed the train at Putney Bridge prior to the device detonating.

He appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Friday charged with attempting to murder a Tube full of commuters and schoolchildren and of using a chemical compound known as TATP to cause an explosion likely to endanger life.

Prosecutor Lee Ingham said it is the prosecutions case Mr Hassan bought the components of the home-made bomb from Amazon. "There were many hundreds of grams of TATP in the device, an electronic timer and several containers of quantities of metal shrapnel including knives, screws and similar items clearly designed to cause severe injuries and death to those nearby. The device did not function as intended. It did not function the TATP, probably due to inaccurate construction. "

Mr Hassan spoke only to confirm his name and address. Deputy chief magistrate Tan Ikram has sent his case to be heard at the Old Bailey on October 13.
