London – An extremist accused of heading a wave of British recruits to
an Al-Qaeda group plotting attacks in Kenya was radicalised in the same
prison as shoe bomber Richard Reid, a report said on Sunday.
The Sunday Times said Jermaine Grant, 29, a Muslim convert, was
arrested recently in the Kenyan coastal resort of Mombasa following
raids to disrupt a campaign of planned terror attacks planned by the
Islamist Shabaab movement.
Britain’s Foreign Office on Saturday warned travellers to Kenya that
there was a heightened threat of “terrorist attacks” in the capital
Nairobi and attacks “may be in the final stages of planning”.
