|Description||Mysterious suicide bombing in Liverpool.|
At 11am on remembrance Sunday, a taxi exploded outside the Women's Hospital in Liverpool, England. The location was close to Liverpool Cathedral where the annual remembrance service was being held. The explosion was caught on CCTV. The taxi driver barely escaped from the car before the bomb ruptured. The passenger was killed instantly.
The bomber was identified as 32-year-old Emad Al Swealmeen, who called himself Enzo Almeni; he was not known to MI5. A post-mortem found he died from injuries caused by the explosion and fire. He arrived in the UK in around 2014 and claimed for asylum as a Syrian refugee, which was denied as officials believed him to be Jordanian rather than Syrian. Priti Patel was criticised for overseeing a flawed asylum system.
The device is thought to have been low-end.
