The Telegraph has live updates from the press conference of Cage (formerly Cage Prisoners – the islamic organisation for apprehended jihadists)
He is, according to Asim Qureshi of Cage Research Director an “extremely kind, extremely gentle…most humble young person I ever knew”. Cage then blame the security services for his radicalisation.
His mosque deny him – A worshipper at the Greenwich Islamic centre who declined to give his name denied all knowledge of Emwazi.”By God we don’t know him,” he said.
His family deny that Mohammed Emwazi is Jihadi John. Neighbours in Maida Vale describe the family as ‘nice and normal’ In jihadi circles they probably are.
His university is shocked and sickened. Incidently his University, the University of Westminster, intended to host well known hate preacher Haitham al Hadaad tonight, however outrage expressed by concerned citizens persuaded the university governance to have the invitation withdrawn.
