The BBC may have moved on but The Times is still doing proper reporting:
Liverpool bomber ‘reverted to Islam’ in months before attack
The Liverpool hospital bomber had reverted to practising Islam in the months before his attack, investigators believe. One theory is that Emad Al Swealmeen, who had converted to Christianity after his arrival in Britain, was trying to atone for apostasy which is considered to be punishable by death by some Islamic scholars.'
That, literally, was my best guess as soon as I heard his name and began hearing all the 'Christian convert' stuff-and-nonsense that the BBC was pumping out over and over again - particularly on hearing that he was living with other 'asylum seekers'.
'You won't hear that on the BBC' used to be a half-quip, but no longer. You really won't hear that on the BBC - at least if the BBC has anything to do with it.
I've checked TVEyes. BBC TV, across its various TV channels, has only mentioned Al Swealmeen for a few seconds a very few times in recent days, and always in connection to ball bearings - just a sentence or two at most at a time.
