Mohammed Awan: Isis suicide bomber’s brother convicted of preparing terror attack in UK

The brother of an Isis suicide bomber has been convicted of preparing for a terrorist attack, after claiming he bought bomb-making materials and weapons for hunting and fishing.

Mohammed Awan, 24, told police he intended to hunt rabbits and other game with a slingshot and 500 ball bearings purchased online.

But investigators uncovered a bomb-making manual advising jihadis to use the bearings as shrapnel among a prolific quantity of terrorist propaganda.

    Sale of ball bearings should be restricted and regulated.
    Controls on the jihad-prone? Forget it – too difficult.
