Man jailed for homemade bomb UK terror attack plot

A man has been jailed for life for plotting a terror attack in the UK using a homemade bomb.

Munir Mohammed, 36, from Derby, who was also found to have exchanged messages with pharmacist Rowaida El-Hassan about ricin, was sentenced at the Old Bailey.

Asylum seeker Mohammed volunteered for a “lone wolf” UK mission while messaging an IS commander on Facebook.

The judge said he “poses a significant risk of serious harm to the public”. He will serve at least 14 years in prison.

Judge Michael Topolski said Mohammed intended to plan an explosion and cause multiple deaths, and considered exploding a device containing ricin.
