UK’s ‘most dangerous extremist group’ regenerating after terrorist prisoners released

Britain’s “most prolific and dangerous extremist group” is regenerating following the release of several convicted terrorists from prison, it has been suggested.

Supporters of Anjem Choudary’s al-Muhajiroun group carried out atrocities including the London Bridge attack, 7/7 London bombings and murder of Lee Rigby, and many have fought for Isis, al-Qaeda and the Taliban abroad.

Choudary is among several activists released from prison in the past six months, as well as men who canvassed support for Isis on Oxford Street and members of a terror cell that plotted to bomb the London Stock Exchange in 2010.

The head of national counterterror policing said officers were working to disrupt terrorist activity by al-Muhajiroun, which has shown itself to be adept at surviving past crackdowns.
