[100 word news] – Man jailed for Elton John nail bomb plot

A teenager has been jailed for planning a nail bomb attack at an Elton John concert on the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.

Haroon Syed from London was caught asking an undercover police officer for a machine gun and explosive vest, telling the officer to ‘make it really strong’, with ‘lots of nails inside’.

During another meeting with the officer, My. Syed said: ‘I might put the bomb in the train, and then I’m going to jump out so the bomb explodes on the train, so ask the brother if he can make that type of bomb with a button’.

Judge Michael Topolski QC said: ‘You were not lured, you were not enticed, you were not entrapped’.

‘You became deeply committed to the ideology of a brutal and barbaric organisation’.

Mr. Syed was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum term of 16 years.
