Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Here's an article about the reality of the liquid explosive claim.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

The whole thing is a Hollywood fantasy!  

To make real explosives is slightly difficult.  

The Fates are kind.

The police are idiots. Bureaucrats are idiots.

I doubt anyone involved in this had any background at all in chemistry.

Although I'll add a small nitpick about the Reg article - it's very easy to get 9% peroxide (at least it is where I live), which would make the concentration stage simpler.

That doesn't, however, make the rest of the 'plot' any more believable.
