How many?

Short post.

I just read the article below and had to do a double-take at the secondary headline:

Iranian in court accused of buying chemicals to prepare for UK terror attack

Fatah Abdullah is alleged to have bought a knife, balaclava, “explosive pre-cursors” including chemicals, more than 8,000 matches and a number of fuses.

Okay, as shocking as this story is the thing that caught my attention was, why the hell he needed 8,000 matches! What was he planning to do with 8,000 matches?

I’m genuinely curious about this so if anyone can come up with an explanation or some suggestion, I’d love to hear it.
