United Kingdom extremist convicted of plotting to kill prime minister

ISIS fanatic guilty of planning to behead Theresa May and attack Parliament

Rahman, of Finchley, north London, had been planning an attack with his uncle, who had joined Isis in Syria.

Naa'imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, from Finchley in north London, meant to attack the prime minister with a knife or a gun.

The details of the violent plans by Naa'imur Zakariyah Rahman were heard at the Old Bailey court where he has been on trial with another man, 22-year-old Mohammad Aqib Imran.

He had insisted at his trial that his plans were fantasy but the jury heard that he willingly accepted a fake bomb from the undercover team after insisting to them he was ready to go ahead.

Briefly.co.za gathered that the details of the violent plans of Naa'imur Zakariyah Rahman were heard at the Old Bailey where he has been on trial with another man, 22-year-old Mohammad Aqib Imran, accused of planning to travel overseas either to Libya or Syria to engage in terrorism.

The defendant revealed his plans to the Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, saying: "I want to do a suicide bomb on Parliament".

The jury is still considering a charge against Imran of preparing terrorist acts overseas. "I want to attempt to kill Theresa May", he is reported to have told the undercover intelligence officers. "If a brother can drive it next to parliament I will bomb".

He also detailed how he meant to use a suicide belt, a drone, an IED and poison, referred to as "P" or "curry mix". An examination of his mobile phone raised concerns that he may have been harbouring extremist views.

Rahman discussed shooting the Prime Minister when she came out of Number 10 to speak to the nation. "I can't get [martyrdom] if I get caught".

A "full frontal assault" with a knife and bomb was to take place on November 28, last year, the Old Bailey heard.

He bought a rucksack from Argos two days later, before meeting an undercover officer in Brixton.

The terrorist was preparing a terrorist attack in the United Kingdom for two years.

Mr Justice Haddon-Cave told Rahman that when he returns to court on 31 August he should expect a lengthy sentence.
