The central conceit in the film "Zoolander" was that male models make the best assassins/terrorists as they're fit, very dumb and easily manipulated.

So who was the fertiliser bomber who was sent out to actually take the risk of buying the raw materials? A male model.


Asked why he had changed his name to Anthony Garcia, he said: "Modelling. If you have a name like Anthony Garcia it had a better ring to it in the modelling world."

Born Rahman Benouis in Algeria, his family moved to east London when he was a child. He went to school in the Ilford area.

Not one single article describes him as the brains of the outfit. I wonder if he was giving his "look" to each MI5 CCTV camera he passed.

I liked the bit about him turning up to buy the fertilizer in his Audi convertible with the top down and music blasting out.

Way to blend in.

Your first step is to become a model.

As a Tupac fan, I would have thought he'd opt for a more peaceful life.
