This is, you may recall, the character who won 15 minutes of fame shortly after 9/11 for announcing that he was on the other side after his mother narrowly escaped death in the Twin Towers. From Reuters, with thanks to Shinolite:
LONDON (Reuters) – A U.S. informant, said by prosecutors to be an accomplice of seven Britons accused of planning bomb attacks, told a London court on Monday he had stockpiled weaponry and ingredients for the deadly poison ricin.
Mohammed Babar, 31, a Pakistan-born American who has admitted terrorism-related offences in the United States, said he had kept bomb-making material and detonators at his home in Lahore, Pakistan, which he intended to smuggle into Britain….
Babar has admitted in closed U.S. hearings trying to acquire the ingredients for what American authorities call “the British bomb plot,” the court was told….
Babar told the court on Monday the detonators were brought to his apartment in June 2003 to be taken to “Europe or the UK” and were stored in a closet with a fan used to keep them from exploding.
Asked what else was kept in the closet Babar replied: “Ammonium nitrate, aluminum powder, ricin, the propane stove, urea — instead of using ammonium nitrate you can use urea to make a bomb too.”
He said the “ricin beans” had been brought from Islamabad. The chemical weapon ricin is made from castor beans.
“There were times when something came about like poisoning water supplies and stuff like that or poisoning people,” he said.
