A man accused of planning to detonate a bomb on London's transport system often spoke about martyrdom and listened to the speeches of Osama bin Laden and other radical preachers, a witness told the Woolwich Crown Court on Wednesday. Muktar Said Ibrahim, 29, is one of six men accused of plotting to detonate explosives on four Underground trains and a bus, two weeks after four suicide bombers killed 52 commuters in London in July 2005. The witness - described as a former roommate of Ibrahim's - gave evidence from behind a screen to protect his identity and was identified by the alias Michael Bexhill. He said the suspect often watched extremist films, showing "martyrs" reading their wills and graphic footage of people dying.
