7/7 bomber video released on anniversary

A video showing Britain’s first suicide bomber, Shehzad Tanweer, has surfaced on the internet and been shown on Al-Jazeera television. BBC News 24 also broke with the news at 13:15 GMT and showed a short segment in which Tanweer explains his actions against the British people. He was responsible for the Aldgate station bombing which killed 7 people on the 7th July 2005. In the video Tanweer says, “To the non-muslims, you British, you voted for a government which is responsible for the oppression and killing of brothers and sisters in Iraq, Afghanistan and Chechnya”. He added a statement saying, “It’s only the beginning”. CNN and Sky News have yet to show the video and Tanweer’s family have, according to the BBC, refused to make a comment. The video over shadows many special commemorative programmes set to saturate television and radio broadcasting tomorrow, the 1st anniversary of the 7/7 terror attacks on London’s transport system. It will also leave a bad taste in the mouth for many. Posted by Picasa
