David Perry, a heroic taxibie who saved the lives of his loved ones and a man-to-be who was already heavily pregnant by their child at Liverpool Women’s Hospital.

Just before 11 a.m., terrorist Emad Jamil al Swealmeen attempted to kill patients in the hospital’s emergency room. Remembrance Sunday: He detonated an explosion in the back seat of a taxi.

The car’s windows blew open, sending glass flying. A plume of smoke then rose up. A mere nine seconds later Mr Perry, the dazed driver, opened his front door and began to stagger out.

He was still conscious and alert despite his injuries. As he made his way towards the hospital reception, his head was in his hands. Witnesses reported that he had locked the suicide bomber inside the car. The vehicle burst into flames about a minute later. 

Perry received widespread praise for his heroism, which was reflected in the words of Prime Minister David Cameron, who noted that Perry displayed an ‘incredible presence and courage’.

Martin Owen, a crane operator, was present at the hospital along with his partner. He expressed his gratitude to the driver for his help in protecting the young families living nearby.

His Facebook status read: “My girlfriend 33 weeks pregnant. [our]Today’s event was witnessed by a baby girl who was in the hospital. 

“The picture of David shows that the taxi driver locked the man inside his vehicle to ensure the safety and well-being of all the babies, women, and children. 

‘From the bottom of my heart, thank you for protecting my girlfriend and baby girl, you are a hero, I hope you make a full recovery.

You owe me and all other fathers of the children and mothers in this hospital.

Amid the fallout from Mr Perry’s heroics, it emerged today that the bomber was allowed to stay in the UK for seven years, despite multiple failed claims for asylum and being arrested for ‘waving’ a ‘large knife’ in public.

Enzo Almeni (32), appealed each time that the Home Office denied his request for permanent residence. The authorities thought he had been lying about his Syrian citizenship and having lived in Iraq, with his mother, who reportedly came to the UK without ID papers.

In tribute to Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari, the car-mad terrorist took his name Emad Jamil al Swealmeen and changed it to Enzo Almeni. 

Although he claimed that it was meant to be more Westernized and simpler to say, there was suspicion because it was his Jordanian birth name and not Syrian.

Malcolm Hitchcott and Elizabeth Hitchcott brought him in almost one year ago and assisted him to convert to Christianity. Because he’d been sectioned after an incident of mental health in which he was swinging a knife at others from an overpass, his case was denied.

According to the latest Home Office data, 125,000 cases of asylum are under consideration by British authorities as per June’s figures. 

Almeni and 5,900 others waited to hear the appeal’s outcome. A total of 39,500 are in deportation mode. 

Around 47,000 foreign criminals and asylum seekers were deported in 2013. It was just 8,000 in 2013.

Almeni is currently under review by the Home Office. MailOnline asked the Home Office if they would change their policy in light of the Liverpool attack.

Emad Jamil Al Swealmeen, 32, was killed after a homemade ball-bearing device exploded inside a taxi he rode to Liverpool Women's Hospital on Remembrance Sunday just seconds before the 11am minute's silence

It happened only seconds before the 11am minutes’ silence.

Rutland Avenue, where Almeni lived and built his bomb, remains sealed off today. It is also the place where he was picked up in the taxi that later exploded outside the Women's Hospital in Liverpool

Rutland Avenue is still sealed today. This was where Almeni lived, and where he built his bomb. You can also find the spot where Almeni was taken in his taxi which later detonated outside Liverpool’s Women’s Hospital.

These were the events which led to the explosion at Liverpool Women’s Hospital, and subsequent arrests and raids.

Police said Almeni had been living at a hostel for asylum seekers – run by private contracting giant Serco – in Sutcliffe Street, Liverpool, ‘for some time’ before renting a ‘bomb factory’ two miles away in Rutland Avenue, paid for by his job as a pizza chef. Almeni is also believed to have been a baker.

The UK does not allow asylum seekers to work, but the appeal he made was granted to get around the ban. His mental problems were likely to have been the reason for his request. 

Although it is unknown when he arrived, however, his first encounter with the authorities was after he was arrested for possessing a large knife after he had been rejected for asylum in 2014. He was then sectioned according to the Mental Health Act.

Almeni was seen carrying a ball bearing bomb made by ISIS to inflict maximum destruction at a hospital. It may have been used to revenge his rejection of asylum applications. 

According to a security source, The Sun was told by a person familiar with the matter that he is examining whether the unresolved grievance drove him over the edge and motivated him to launch the attack.

Almeni died shortly after his taxi arrived at Liverpool Women’s Hospital. The homemade device had exploded just minutes before Remembrance Day’s 11:00am time.

He used homemade TATP explosives to make his bomb. TATP is unstable. It is known as the ‘Mother of Satan.’ Because it can accidentally explode. 

It was also used by Islamist terrorists during the Paris suicide attacks in 2015, 2017 Manchester Arena bombing and failed attack on the Parsons Green Underground station. 

Almeni was not the only one who had taken Ahmed Hassan in as a child, but he too became a terrorist.

MI5 and the police will attempt to find out whether he was radicalised by whom and how he came to be ISIS’ bomb-of-choice.

David Videcette is a former counter-terrorism detective from Scotland Yard who was a 7/7 agent. He said that today there’s a disagreement about Emad al Swealmeen’s identity and origin. 

“This problem is always with asylum seekers who destroy their documents prior to arrival. He didn’t learn to make bombs working in cake shops, that’s for sure.
