Video: Moment 21/7 'bomber' fled in a burka
Last updated at 14:25pm on 20th February 2007

This is the moment one of the 21/7 suspects fled London dressed as a woman in a burka.

A jury was today shown CCTV footage of 26-year-old Yassin Omar covered from head to toe - with a handbag draped over his left arm.

At 6ft 2in, Omar stood out in the crowded street as he was filmed
walking along the pavement towards Golders Green Bus station. Commuters can be seen turning round to watch him as he passes.

It was 22 July, 2005, the day after he and five others are accused
of trying to cause carnage with rucksack bombs on London's transport system two weeks after the 7/7 attacks. A series of different cameras followed his
movements across a busy road and into the station to catch a National Express
coach to Birmingham at 6.21pm.

Today the trial judge at Woolwich crown court, Mr Justice Fulford,
asked Omar's barrister Peter Carter: "Is it accepted it is your client?' Mr
Carter replied: "Yes."

But does he wax or shave?
