Bomb-mak­ing videos still found on Google

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - News - By Stephen Be­van

MAN­U­ALS for mak­ing a bomb like the one left at Par­sons Green can still be found freely on­line.

A quick Google search yes­ter­day brought up guides from ter­ror groups such as Al Qaeda, in­clud­ing im­ages such as the one, right. Last night crit­ics said web giants must do more to crack down on ter­ror­ist ma­te­rial.

Yvette Cooper, who chairs the Home Af­fairs Se­lect Com­mit­tee, said: ‘The in­ter­net giants have made it much harder for peo­ple to find child abuse im­ages on­line. It’s time they showed the same com­mit­ment to tack­ling ter­ror­ism.’ In May, Zahid Hus­sain, a night­club bouncer from Birm­ing­ham, was jailed for mak­ing a bomb us­ing a pres­sure cooker and fairy lights from an in­ter­net guide. A Google spokesman said: ‘We re­move links to il­le­gal con­tent from our search re­sults as soon as we’re no­ti­fied of them.’
