Emad Al Swealmeen, 32, died when a homemade bomb exploded in a taxi on Sunday morning, police say.

The man killed in an explosion outside Liverpool Women’s Hospital has been named by police as 32-year-old Emad Al Swealmeen.

He was a passenger in a taxi when a homemade bomb exploded shortly before 11:00 GMT on Remembrance Sunday.

The driver David Perry escaped before the car caught fire and has since been discharged from hospital.

Police said it had been declared as a terrorist incident and four men have been arrested under the Terrorism Act.

Officers believe Al Swealmeen lived at a house in Sutcliffe Street in the Kensington area of Liverpool, where counter-terrorism police officers carried out raids earlier.

Police said he had recently rented an address in Rutland Avenue, near Sefton Park in the city, which has also been searched by officers.

“Our focus is the Rutland Avenue address where we have continued to recover significant items,” said Det Ch Insp Andrew Meeks, from Counter Terrorism Police North West.
