Burqa terror suspect no longer a wanted man after fleeing Acton mosque

A terror suspect, who fled the country disguised in a burqa, has had his arrest warrant dropped by the Old Bailey.

Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed, 29, gave anti-terrorism officers the slip in November 2013 when he left the An-Noor Masjid and Community Centre in Church Road, Acton, where he used to pray – hidden under a woman’s veil.

He was the subject of control orders over claims he received training and fought overseas for al-Shabaab, the Somalia-based cell of Al-Qaeda, who were behind the attack on a mall in Nairobi, Kenya, that killed at least 67 shoppers that same year.
