London car bomb: Construction right out of al Qaeda manual

Dhiren BAROT

29 June 2007: According to police and intelligence officials, the car bomb discovered early this morning outside of the London nightclub Tiger, Tiger met the very specifications from a 39-page explosives manual titled Rough Presentation for the Gas Limos Project authored by al Qaeda terrorist Dhiren BAROT, pictured above. The manual was the product of 12 months of research by BAROT that outlines an intricate plan to pack vehicles – particularly limousines - with explosives and gas cylinders, park them in car parks beneath buildings and detonate them.

Propane gas cylinders, the size and style used in patio grills, were identified as the best option for such bombs as the cylinders are easy to obtain, transport and construct into a bomb. The manual also explains how to coat the cylinders in napalm, and add nails and other items to act as shrapnel to make the bomb more deadly.

Barot, 44, is serving a 30-year jail term in a British prison after his terror-related convictions for planning to explode gas and explosives packed into limousines or other large vehicles in underground car parks in co-ordinated attacks across Britain. He also admitted plotting to attack the New York Stock Exchange and other U.S. financial institutions.
