Man convicted of planning terror attacks on London tourist hotspots
Mohiussunnath Chowdhury, 28, from Luton has been convicted of planning a terror attack in various London tourist hotspots. This is just over a year after he was cleared of attacking police with a sword outside Buckingham Palace.
Chowdhury talked about targeting multiple attractions including ‘Madame Tussauds’, and ‘Gay Pride parade’ as well as a tourist bus.
Chowdhury unwittingly revealed his plot to undercover officers, during a five-month operation, to police pretending to be like-minded extremists.
While bragging to them that he had deceived the jury at his first trial. Chowdhury told jurors he only wanted to be killed by police and did not intend to harm anyone.
Chowdhury was cleared of a terror charge in December 2018 after slashing police with a sword outside the Queen’s London residence while shouting “Allahu Akbar”.
