Muslim who told poppy-selling army cadets as young as 12 that he was going to bomb their barracks is jailed

A man has been jailed after threatening to kill a group of army cadets and blow up their barracks after they had been selling poppies for the Royal British Legion.

Rabbnawaz Ali made the threats to a group of youngsters, aged between 12 and 16, who were left frightened by the comments made.

The group were returning to the barracks in Sheepscar, Leeds, West Yorkshire, after selling poppies in Leeds city centre.

Leeds Crown Court heard how Ali approached the group and said: ‘Where are you off next lads, Iraq?’

He added: ‘Better be careful because me and my Isis brothers will kill you all. Your day will come.’
