New Surveillance Video Of Fleeing 7/27 Bomber

Via Charles at Little Green Footballs (hat tip - Kasper), here's new surveillance video of the moment when Yassin Omar, another of the failed 7/21 bombers, tried to set off his bomb on a London tube train:

The actual explosion is off camera, but you do see the would-be terrorist fleeing through the station. Eyewitnesses report that his "primer" charge (that was supposed to set off the much larger explosion) went off and blew him up to the top of the car.

And he was going to his death with a bottle of aftershave and a copy of the DVD release of "Meet the Fockers" in his rucksack.

The bride of one of the alleged July 21 bombers was found at her home in tears by a man frantically searching for her husband, a court heard today.

When Matthew Dixon spoke to Yassin Omar's wife of less than a week just two days after the attempted attacks, she said: "How could he do this? We just got married," Woolwich Crown Court heard.
