Irish Daily Mirror - - IRISH DAILY MIRROR -

Hus­nain Rashid AN Is­lamic State fa­natic who en­cour­aged a ter­ror at­tack on Prince Ge­orge at his school has been jailed for a min­i­mum of 25 years.

Hus­nain Rashid, 32, used a so­cial me­dia chat group to call on sup­port­ers to target the four-year-old.

Rashid posted a pho­to­graph of Thomas’s Bat­tersea in South West Lon­don, su­per­im­posed with ji­hadi fight­ers.

Judge An­drew Lees said at Wool­wich crown court: “The mes­sage was clear – Prince Ge­orge and other mem­bers of the Royal fam­ily should be viewed as po­ten­tial tar­gets.”

The for­mer teacher at a Lan­cashire mosque ad­mit­ted four ter­ror­ism charges. He was jailed for life and must serve 25 years be­fore any pa­role.
