Seconds after stopping outside, the car exploded in a ball of fire as driver Dave Perry miraculously managed to escape.

Al Swealmeen, 32, was trapped inside hell and pronounced dead at the scene.

Greater Manchester Police today confirmed his cause of death was ‘injuries sustained in the fire and explosion’.

The force also revealed that a close relative of the terrorist came forward to confirm that Al Swealmeen was born in Iraq.

Officers are now investigating the ‘mental illness episodes’ he has suffered and say Al Swealman has made ‘relevant purchases’ in the months since April.

A number of “significant items” were found at an address he rented on Rutland Avenue.

Officers have yet to find the motive for the explosion and it remains unclear whether he was part of a terrorist cell.

They called on anyone with knowledge of the terrorist to come forward to help them “piece together the events leading up to this incident and the reasons for it”.

The force added: “The investigation into the terrorist incident at Liverpool Women’s Hospital on Sunday November 14 is continuing.

“The taxi in which the device exploded has now been removed and today line searches by specialist officers will take place at the hospital which may continue tomorrow.

“A complex picture is emerging over purchases of the aircraft components, we know that Al Swealmeen leased the property from April this year and we believe relevant purchases have been made at least since that date.

“At this time we cannot find any links to others in the Merseyside area of ​​concern, but this remains a rapid investigation and as more becomes known we cannot rule out action against others. “

It comes as Mr Perry revealed the car-mad terrorist only said two words during their seven-minute journey: ‘Women’s Hospital’.

Al Swealmeen reportedly moved to the UK seven years ago.

After his asylum claim was rejected, he was reportedly sectioned under the Mental Health Act for brandishing a knife near Liverpool city centre.

‘ASYLUM CARRY-ON’

Friends have claimed the F1 fan changed his name to Enzo Almeni in honor of Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari – hoping it would sound more western and help his candidacy stick.

In 2017 he converted to Christianity at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral and lived with devout Christians Malcolm and Elizabeth Hitchott.

That same year, he lost his last resort for asylum, but was not deported.

Last night Home Secretary Priti Patel said the case was an example of Britain’s broken asylum system.

She said: “It’s a full ride and it’s been exploited.

“A whole kind of professional legal services industry has been based on appeal rights, going to court day in and day out at taxpayers’ expense through legal aid. That’s effectively what we we have to change.”

Four men arrested for terrorism offenses following the explosion have been released without charge.
