Teenager Planned Terror Attacks

October 2, 2013

A 17-year-old boy planned terrorist attacks on a mosque and two colleges in Leicestershire, a jury has heard.

The teenager was one of three arrested in February when their homes in Loughborough were raided by counter terrorism officers.

Two other 17-year-olds have admitted possessing petrol bombs and pipe bombs.

The third boy has gone on trial at the Old Bailey accused of two terrorism offences. He denies the charges. The hearing continues.

None of the teenagers can be named for legal reasons.

The BBC are also reporting that this boy has Aspergers, which is why I’m covering the case. I’ll update this post when I find a link confirming this info.
