DRAMATIC footage of the moments two of the July 7 bombers detonated their devices on the London transport network was played to a jury.
The pictures show a cloud of dust and smoke which filled a platform at Liverpool Street station seconds after a train blown apart by suicide attacker Shezhad Tanweer pulled away. A court also saw the resulting chaos and horrified reaction of those near the number 30 bus in Tavistock Square when bomber Hasib Hussain detonated his rucksack.
The films were played to Kingston Crown Court where three men are standing trial accused of helping the bombers plan their attack.
The four suicide bombers – Tanweer Hussain, Mohammed Siddique Khan, of Dewsbury, and former Rawthorpe High School student Jermaine Lindsay – murdered 52 people and injured hundreds more when they set off the home-made devices in the capital in 2005.
The films were shown to the trial of Waheed Ali, 25, Sadeer Saleem, 28, and Mohammed Shakil, 32, all from Beeston, Leeds, who all deny a charge of conspiring with the bombers and others unknown to cause explosions between November 17, 2004, and July 8, 2005. All three defendants are alleged to have carried out a two-day reconnaissance mission in the capital with Hussain and Lindsay.
