A blast strong enough to collapse a building . . . now I'm not physicist, nor demolitions expert, but I have a hard time believing that could be caused by ANYTHING short of an actual explosive device.

"Leicester shop explosion: Three men in court over fatal blast 'caused by petrol'"

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-le ... e-43287436

Allahu Akbar, or just retarded? Petrol spread all over a supermarket? Dafuq.

Spreading petrol (or gasoline) sounds like they intended to burn the place down. If the shop owner was involved then it sounds as if it might have been part of an insurance scam.

When they have business problems and discover that collecting on the fire insurance is more profitable than running or selling the business.

I am guessing that petrol "spread" (meaning I presume "poured on the floor") around a structure would not produce an explosion of sufficient force to tear apart a 50 year old two-story building in Leicester. That looks like it is a cinderblock or stone construction with steel framework and a brick facade?

I would think it must have been rigged for explosive effect?

I agree with you.

HOLY FUCK. That was a BOMB! It appears as if there was not much of a fire, but a tremendous amount of concussive force.

I'm smelling bullshit when it comes to "petrol spread around."
