More Images of Failed Bombing in London Released Today

More images from the failed July 21, 2005 bombing attempt in London were released today at the trial of the six men accused of trying to mount a deadly bomb attack there just two weeks after the deadly subway and bus bombings that are often referred to as the U.K.'s 9/11.

A grainy surveillance camera video from the No. 26 bus in east London allegedly shows defendant Muktar Said Ibrahim attempting to detonate a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and flour in a backpack.

The jury also saw photographs of the remnants of Ibrahim's alleged bomb, which show the backpack split open with a yellow substance dripping out onto the floor of the bus.

According to courtroom reports, the bus driver told the jury today that he discovered the alleged bomb on the top deck of his bus after he heard a bang come from there.
