Manchester terrorist ‘watched YouTube videos to help build bomb’

SUICIDE bomber Salman Abedi used YouTube and other websites to build the bomb he used to carry out the Manchester terror attack, it has been reported.

By Sam Sholli, The Express, June 24, 2017:

Abedi is said to have viewed clips on YouTube about the manufacture of improvised explosive devices.

He also reportedly downloaded material from other websites about the chemical compound used in the bomb he detonated at an Ariana Grande concert.

Abedi is said to have viewed clips on YouTube about the manufacture of improvised explosive devices.

He also reportedly downloaded material from other websites about the chemical compound used in the bomb he detonated at an Ariana Grande concert.

Security services initially suspected that the the complexity of the device meant that it could have only been put together by an experienced bomb-maker.

A couple of days after the Manchester attack, a series of bomb-making guides were found freely available on Facebook and YouTube.

This included step-by-step instructions on how to make a bomb using acetone peroxide, an ingredient used by Abedi.

The main ingredient in the nail bomb used by Abedi was triacetone triperoxide (TATP), which can be made using common chemicals.

Abedi is believed to have accessed videos online containing information about how to construct various devices, including those using TATP, the Times reports.

A YouTube spokesman said: “We do not allow bomb-making videos and quickly remove flagged videos that break our rules. We employ thousands of people to counter abuse of our platform and are working with government, law enforcement and civil society groups to tackle the problem of violent extremism online.”

Home secretary Amber Rudd yesterday met Facebook’s chief operating officer to discuss efforts to tackle online terrorist propaganda.

Abedi, who was the son of Libyan immigrants and raised in Manchester, came back from Tripoli four days before he killed 22 people at the Manchester Arena.
