UK terror threat level raises to “severe” after car blast

CA, 16 Nov 2021
A Liverpool taxi driver is being praised for his “heroic efforts” for locking a passenger inside his cab during an explosion outside a hospital in what police are calling a terrorist incident.

British police on Monday named the man behind the blast as 32-year old Emad Al Swealmeen. The man is connected to two addresses where searches are still ongoing, police said.

“Our inquiries indicate that an improvised explosive device was manufactured, and our assumption so far is that it was built by the passenger in the taxi,” said Assistant Chief Constable Russ Jackson of Counter-Terrorism Policing Northwest.

In the wake of the attack, the UK has raised its terror level threat to “severe.”
