Salman Abedi may have received ISIS training in Syria, US officials say.
Asked if there was any indication Salman Abedi had received training in Libya or planned an attack inside Libya, Ben Salem said, "I don't think so." Based on what the bomber's brother has told the militia, "everything was prepared in Manchester" since the end of 2016, he said. Abedi reportedly used a “homemade” bomb that can be made with over-the-counter materials. Those bombs “can go very well undetected,” Ringel said. After all, authorities aren’t going to investigate everyone who buys nails or other items that could be placed in one of those bombs. As of now, intelligence officials believe Abedi may have been the “mule” for the bomb, the BBC reports. In other words, someone else made the device, but Abedi carried it on his person all the way to the detonation point. He was just the delivery system. TATP or HMTD peroxide based explosive, 'Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom', Samir Khan Inspire Magazine.
In July 2010, al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen published an article titled “Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom” with instructions by Samir Khan in the first edition of its glossy new magazine, Inspire. The magazine, which was widely circulated online, included step-by-step instructions on how to make a bomb, with the goal of encouraging “lone wolf” attacks against the United States and its allies.
Hexamethylene triperoxide diamine (HMTD) and triacetone triperoxide or TATP remain a common home-made explosive and has been used in a large number of suicide bombings and other attacks throughout the world. For example (HMTD) was one of the components in the explosives intended to bomb Los Angeles International Airport in the 2000 millennium attack plots, it was used in the July 7th 2005 London subway bombings, and it was the planned explosive in the 2006 transatlantic aircraft plot. (HMTD) was also used in the 2016 New York and New Jersey bombings. The three blasts that rocked Brussels on 22 March have sent shock waves across Europe, reminding people of the 2015 Paris attacks. Brothers Khalid and Brahim e-Bakraoui – both Belgian nationals – have been identified as two of the suspected bombers, who wrecked havoc at the main terminal of Zaventem International Airport in Brussels and the Maelbeek metro station, killing more than 30 people and injuring hundreds of others. While investigations are underway, police recovered a peroxide-based explosive, called triacetone triperoxide or TATP, from an apartment belonging to one of the suspected bombers. Peroxide-based chemicals are highly unstable and are extensively used by terrorists to make bombs.
TATP, hexamethylene triperoxide diamine (HMTD) and similar peroxide-based chemicals have been used by terrorists for decades. TATP was the primary explosive material used in many bombs and suicide vests in the November 2015 Paris attacks. The unstable chemical was used in the 2005 London bombings as well. In 2009, the chemical was confiscated from Najibullah Zazi, who attempted to blast the New York City subway system. In December 2001, Richard Reid – also known as the shoe bomber – attempted to detonate a TATP-triggered explosive on a Miami-bound flight from Paris. TATP, which is also known as "Mother of Satan", is a white powdery substance obtained by reacting hydrogen peroxide with acetone under certain chemical conditions. TATP and other acetone peroxide based explosive chemicals do not contain nitrogen, hence, can evade nitrogen bomb detectors.
