eBay’s PROACT Team Assists UK Counter Terrorism Unit in Investigation

Would-be suicide bomber Mohammed Rehman and his wife Sana Ahmed Khan have been found guilty of planning a major terror attack in London.  Rehman had stockpiled bomb-making materials at his Reading home and was using the Twitter username “Silent Bomber.”  He asked his followers which targets they thought suitable for a massive terror attack; Westfield Shopping Center or the London Underground. Khan, 24, was convicted of helping her husband plan the atrocity and paying for chemicals purchased from eBay, including more than 10kg of urea nitrate, a fertilizer-based high explosive discovered at the couple’s home, which had the potential to cause “multiple fatalities.”
