A top British computer hacker was behind the first ISIS terror plot directed against mainland America, US court documents show.
Junaid Hussain used the internet to recruit American Munir Abdulkader to behead a US soldier whose family home address had been hacked from military records.
Hussain, 21, was was widely reported as number three on America’s ISIS target list before he was killed in a US drone strike in Syria in August last year.
He was a key target due to his computer hacking skills and his work as an ISIS recruiter.
Hussain, from Birmingham, was married to Sally Jones, a middle-aged rocker turned Muslim convert from Kent, who was nicknamed ‘Mrs Terror’.
