Muslim found guilty over plot to mount Lee Rigby-style terror attack on Remembrance Day

A British man has been convicted of an Isil-inspired plot to behead police and soldier on Remembrance Day.

Nadir Syed planned to launch a car and knives attack in November last year as the country carried out Poppy day commemorations.

Detectives said the atrocity, had it succeeded, would have been larger and more horrific than the Lee Rigby murder.

He was obsessed with Fusilier Rigby’s killers and inspired by an Isil fatwa issued weeks before ordering followers to murder soldier and police wherever they were

    Too bad he’s going to the slammer. Nadir could have scored a role in the next remake of Planet of the Apes.

      Well in prison he will play Cornholius in a remake of Planet of the Rapes.

        Too funny. I was going to say that he could play an extra in Planet of the Apes, but you beat me to it.

    At least, he just a Moderate Muslim and only wants to kill soldiers and cops.
