UK terror cell was arrested after US code crackers hacked into the phone of ‘man in the hat’

Five UK terror suspects were arrested after US code crackers hacked into a phone linked to the ‘man in the hat’ Mohamed Abrini.

Four men and a woman from Birmingham were held as officers swooped on the suspected UK arm of the fanatical group who killed 162 in Paris and Brussels in a wave of gun attacks and suicide bombings.

The phone linked to Abrini, 31, is believed to have contained photographs of Birmingham landmarks including Aston Villa’s football stadium and the city’s Bullring shopping mall.

A photograph of New Street rail station and images of the Small Heath area are also said to have been discovered on the device.

    Cleaning up the spilled milk does not solve the problem of how it was spilled to begin with.

    But it is islamophobic to be suspicious of muslim amateur photographers who take pictures of bridges and tunnels at 5:00 am.

      We had a case of that in Vancouver recently where some muzzie looking guys were seen videoing Waterfront Station. Once they explained however, that they were but innocently shooting vid to send to their cousin in the ME, they received grovelling apologies from the cops and all involved and the MSM was full of concern over “Islamophobia (sic)” for days. :rolleyes
