Beware the Delta 6250

Tupperware is apparently supposed to be the new weapon of mass destruction:
Peter Clarke, the head of London's anti-terrorism police, also said there were "clear similarities" between the four failed bombs used on three subway trains and a bus and a fifth device found in a park in northwest London last Saturday.

As he spoke at a briefing for reporters, at which no questions were permitted, he produced an example of a plastic, white-lidded Delta 6250 container of a type that he said is made in India and sold in around 100 British outlets. Investigators have long maintained that the bombs used both in London's deadly July 7 attacks and last Thursday were relatively crude home-made devices.
