Another British-born jihadist. From The Guardian, with thanks to D. C. Watson:
A market stall holder who plotted to “hunt down” and kill a decorated British soldier was jailed for six years today.
British-born Abu Mansha, 21, obtained an address for Corporal Mark Byles after reading coverage in the Sun newspaper of how he led a bayonet charge in which he killed up to 20 Iraqi insurgents.
When Mansha’s flat in Thamesmead, south east London, was searched by Special Branch in March last year they found a blank-firing gun in the process of being converted to shoot live rounds.
There was also a scrap of paper with the name of Cpl Byles and the word “hero”, as well as a “horrific” collection of DVDs showing Osama bin Laden and the beheading of British hostage Ken Bigley.
