Parsons Green tube bomber Ahmed Hassan jailed for life
Teenager to serve at least 34 years for attempted murder after partial detonation on tube
A teenage Iraqi asylum seeker who planted a homemade bomb on a rush-hour London underground train has been jailed for life with a recommendation that he serve a minimum of 34 years.
Ahmed Hassan, who claims to be 18, was convicted of attempted murder after the device partially detonated at Parsons Green, west London, in September last
“Your intention that morning was to kill as many members of the
British public as possible,” Mr Justice Haddon-Cave told Hassan. “I am
satisfied that you were determined to cause as much death and carnage
Hassan had carried out the attack with “ruthless determination and
almost military efficiency”, said the judge. “There is no doubt in my
mind that you are a very dangerous and devious individual.”
More than 50 people were injured when a fireball swept through the
carriage, burning passengers’ skin, hair and clothing, or suffered crush injuries as passengers fell over each other while trying to escape.
