Parsons Green terror suspect ‘wouldn’t hurt an ant’, relatives say

Relatives of the Syrian refugee arrested as part of the investigation into the Parsons Green bombing have insisted the suspect “wouldn’t hurt an ant” and “loves” the UK.

Yahyah Farroukh, 21, became the second person to be arrested in connection with Friday’s attack on a rush hour Tube train which injured 30 people.

Like the 18-year-old Iraqi man arrested in Dover, Mr Farroukh had also lived at the Surrey home of a respected elderly couple who specialised in the foster care of refugees.
