A student had confessed that he had created a bomb and left it on the subway train. But he said that it was a joke.
Damon Smith negated creation or owning an explosive matter with the aim to imperil someone`s life, but at the Old Bailey he accepted committing a bomb joke.
The prosecution stated that Mr. Smith planed that a Improvised Explosive Device (IED) will detonate and imperil people's lives on the Jubilee train.
Accusers noted that IED included ball bearings to be the shrapnel. For the prosecution, Jonathan Rees QC, pointed out that this was "to boost the devastating effect of the device."
The court found out that the device was located by two passengers when Mr. Smith went off the train at London Bridge Station.
It was given to a driver, Adrian Clark, who originally thought it was lost belongings, but after, when he went to North Greenwich, understood that there were two wires coming out from behind the clock.
It was said, that the indictee has Asperger's syndrome, or Autism Spectrum Disorder, and shows a big interest in firearms and other weapons that can be a feature of this condition.
It was found out that Mr. Smith told police that he was raised by a Christian, but was interested in Islam, which, in his opinion, was "more truthful".
The trial proceedings goes on.
