A tabloid in the UK posted an inflammatory article this morning, claiming that they had purchased a “jihadi bomb kit” like the one used in the Manchester Arena terrorist attack off of Amazon for only £95 ($128), with no “security check” or “warning to the authorities” that the purchase was made.

People may recall that the Manchester Arena attack in May was conducted with a bomb made with a homemade explosive called TATP, or acetone peroxide. This explosive has been trending in terrorist attacks, to include those in Paris and Brussels within the last two years, due to its relatively low-tech building requirements and readily available components that can be purchased easily in hardware stores or online.

When the contents of the “bomb kit” were displayed, it was simply a small assortment of chemicals necessary for the explosive mixture, some wiring, a pressure cooker, a timing device, a battery, and some metal nuts and bolts to serve as shrapnel. Despite the sensationalist headline purporting this to be a “bomb kit,” these are all completely innocuous items that have legitimate uses in everyday life. The article then went on to quote politicians and explosives experts who lambasted Amazon for allowing such a transaction to occur, even going so far as to say the internet retailer is “aiding and abetting terrorism.”

Acknowledging for a moment that a tabloid is by design a sensationalist “fake news”-style media outlet, the article serves to illustrate a larger point: that many people do not recognize and appreciate how easy it has become to construct low-grade explosive devices that can kill and maim. A simple Google search will yield article after article containing recipes for the kinds of explosives that have killed dozens across Europe in Islamic State-inspired attacks. Videos on YouTube showcase people experimenting with TATP in their backyard.
