The bombers from Britain

Shortly before their suicide mission, these men proclaim on video: ‘It is an honour to kill’. Two British suicide bombers are shown rejoicing at the prospect of killing Israelis in a videotape made before their deaths last year and released yesterday by the militant Palestinian group Hamas. Asif Hanif, from Hounslow, south-west London, and Omar Khan Sharif, from Derby, are seen wearing military fatigues as they seek to justify in Arabic and English the lethal attack which they were about to make on a Tel Aviv club last year. Three people were killed and 55 injured in the attack when Hanif, 22, who was of Pakistani descent, blew himself up at Mike’s Place on 30 April. In the videotape, Hanif says: “What can I say?
