But it is not the first time TATP has been used in a terrorist attack.  invented in 1895, TATP had a resurgence, the Times of London reports, among Palestinians on the West Bank in the 1980s, and documents on how to make TATP are easily obtainable. TATP was used to make the bombs for the failed 21 July, 2005, attacks on London. It probably would have had the same effect as the deadly bombs used in London two weeks earlier, which were perpetrated with a different explosive. Fifty-two people were killed and more than 700 wounded in "7/7" attacks.A TATP-based bomb was detonated on a Dec. 11, 1994, flight to Japan, and a TATP bomb exploded outside the Israeli Embassy in London that same year. TATP was also used by Richard Reid, the would-be "shoe bomber" on a Dec. 22, 2001, flight from Paris to Miami.
