Another uk Muslim convicted of a terrorist plot... the targets were American soldiers at UK airbase

Post by Tommy Monk on Sat May 14, 2016 8:53 pm



An extremist has been jailed for life, with a minimum term of 12 years, for planning an attack on US military personnel in the UK.

Junead Khan, 25, was a "committed supporter" of Islamic State and plotted to kill a soldier using a knife in the style of Jihadi John, who he is said to have idolised.

The British-born delivery driver used his job at a pharmaceutical firm as cover to scout US Air Force bases in East Anglia for potential victims.

When police arrested Khan last July, they found photos of him posing in his bedroom with an IS-style flag and his computer was found to contain an al Qaeda bomb manual and Amazon searches for a large combat knife.

He was a delivery driver who used his work activities to scout out the airbase and potential targets of attack...


He planned to deliberately crash into a soldier causing them to stop, and then jump out and kill/behead them with a knife!
