In every suburb, across the nation . . .
Manfred Mann sang about your "semi-detached suburban Mr Mouse" about the boredom of suburban life. Oh that it were.
AN Elm Park law student has appeared in court accused of sending emails containing terrorist material.
Mohammed Gul, 21, of Elm Park Avenue, allegedly sent two video files featuring explosions and a picture of Osama bin Laden displaying Arabic script. He is also said to have had a document containing bomb-making instructions.
The third year degree student, said to be from an academically gifted family, was arrested in Hornchurch on February 10, after a raid by anti-terror police.
District Judge Timothy Workman refused Gul bail and remanded him in custody until March 3. His lawyer indicated he would be pleading not guilty.
Gul is charged with two counts of transmitting a terrorist publication, intending that an effect of his conduct would be a direct or indirect encouragement or other inducement to the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.
He is further charged with possessing a document containing information likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism under Section 58 of the Terrorism Act.
A 24-YEAR-old man from East London has been charged tonight with sending bomb hoaxes to the BBC, ITN and a Government department.
He is Nasar Ahmed, who was first arrested at his home at Wooster Gardens in Poplar in October, on suspicion of communicating hoax threats.
Ahmed faces allegations of five offences under the 1988 Malicious Communications Act which include sending letters to the BBC, ITN, Channel 5 and the Department of Work & Pensions in September with false information “for the purpose of causing distress or anxiety and intending that their contents should be communicated.”
This is Luton. A 53-year-old man suffered minor injuries after he was the victim of what is thought to have been a racist attack in Bury Park last week. Four teenagers of Asian appearance approached the man from behind as he walked along Moor Path just after 5pm on Thursday, February 19.
The gang pushed the victim before kicking his feet from under him causing him to fall to the ground. They told the man that the incident had been 'racial' before fleeing towards Waldeck Road. Investigating Sgt Katherine Rivers is keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the attack. She said: "This man was making his way home minding his own business when out of the blue he has been the victim of a physical attack. . . This incident has left the victim with grazing to his hands and legs together with a cut to his lip. This sort of abuse will not be tolerated."
Police are looking for four Asian boys aged between 14 and 16.
