“Teenage girl, her sister and mother ‘plotted terror attacks in London as part of Britain’s first all-female ISIS hit squad,'” by Duncan Gardham and Richard Spillett, MailOnline, May 10, 2018:
A teenager, her sister and mother plotted to launch terror attacks in London, spurred on by an ISIS recruiter in Syria, a court has heard.
In Britain’s first all-female terrorist plot, Safaa Boular, 18, from Vauxhall, South London, is accused planning an attack on the British Museum.
She was encouraged by her mother and sister, who took up her plans when she was jailed, plotting to launch an attack near the Houses of Parliament, the Old Bailey was told.
Boular had allegedly planned to wear a suicide belt in Syria with her ISIS-fighter husband and ‘depart the world holding hands, and taking others with them in an act of terrorism,’ the Old Bailey was told.
But when he was killed in Syria, she switched her plans to Britain, the court heard.
It is claimed that she conducted a relationship with Naweed Hussain, with a view to marrying him, and made plans to travel to Syria by booking a flight to Istanbul.
Her support for him ‘would extend to each of them donning a suicide belt,’ Duncan Atkinson QC told the court.
‘Together they would, as Hussain put it, ‘depart this world holding hands and taking others with them’ in an act of terrorism,’ he said.
When he was killed on April 4 last year, she allegedly arranged to receive weapons in order to conduct an attack in the UK, and received instructions on how to train and use weapons.
Mr Atkinson, told the Old Bailey: ‘Based on her preparation and discussion, it appears she planned to launch an attack against members of the public, selected largely at random, in the environs of that cultural jewel and most popular of tourist attractions, the British Museum, in central London.
‘This would have been an attack that would, at the very least have caused widespread panic, but was intended to involve the infliction of serious injury and death.’…
