November 17 2021, British police said that the homemade bomb in the Liverpool hospital explosion contained ball bearings, which may cause “significant injury or death”. Rose Jackson, assistant director of the Northwest Anti-Terrorist Police Department, said that if the bomb detonates in other circumstances, it will cause significant injury or death.
On November 14, a taxi exploded outside Liverpool Women’s Hospital in England, killing a passenger and injuring the driver. According to relevant information released by the police, the deceased was Amad Eswellmione, a 32-year-old Iraqi-born man who made a bomb and took the explosive device to a taxi.
Police said that the motives for the man’s attack were not clear, but the incident had been characterized as a terrorist incident. The four previously arrested have been released, and the investigation into the explosion continues.
After the Liverpool bombing, the British government announced an increase in the national terrorist threat level from the third level of “high” to the second level of “serious”, which means “the possibility of terrorist attacks”.
