Looks like Britain dodged one yesterday
« on: November 15, 2021, 10:13:49 AM »

Taxi driver got suspicious about a passenger in his cab heading to a veterans parade and took action. Turned out the guy had a bomb belt on.
Details are fluid at this point.

Edit: Forgot to add. The guy then went boom in the taxi

I understand that he's alive, but in serious condition in the hospital.

At 0:33 you can see the driver get out of the taxi. Yeah, he was in the taxi when it went off.

Not much of a bomb.  If the car was a VW, it would have been fine.
