Guilty Of Plotting To Behead Soldier
Forensic examination of phone showed online search for information on military bases
A teenage Muslim convert has been found guilty of planning his own attack on members of the British military.
Brusthom Ziamani, 19, was arrested by counter terrorism officers on 19 August last year, carrying a rucksack containing a 12-inch knife, a large hammer and an Islamic flag.
He was arrested by police later that day, purely by chance, as officers had been planning to detain him for the extremist messages he was continuing to post on Facebook.
Forensic examination of his mobile phone also discovered that he had searched online for information on army cadet and other military bases in his local area.
