New Delhi, April 16, 2017: A 30-year-old British Muslim Islamic State fighter named Omar Hussain has been accused of using an encrypted messaging service Telegram to call on his supporters to unleash bomb attacks in London. The accused is a former supermarket worker from Buckinghamshire who fled to Syria in 2013, has also shared bomb-making guidelines using the same service.

Hussain has called on his followers to unleash a nail bomb assault akin to the attack in St Petersburg that killed 15 people earlier this month, the ‘Mirror’ reported.

He reportedly posted a picture of a finished explosive device with a caption that said: “Looks like creme brulee.”

Before switching allegiance to the ISIS terror network, Hussain had left his UK home to join the al Qaeda affiliated group Jabhat al-Nusra.

In December last year, he had delivered a Christmas message urging followers to rob party-goers in order to get money for knives and bombs.

“At Christmas the kuffaar (non-Muslims) are loaded with money so it’s the best time. Wait around the corner from a pub for a drunk kafir (non-Muslim) to exit and go down an alleyway,” he wrote on a secure message service.

“Once in the alleyway it only takes a few punches for a drunk kafir to fall unconscious. Take a few ikhwa (brothers) and u can rob him. They could stab a kafir or slit his throat. I had friends in the UK who would do this in London and they never once got caught,” he wrote.

Hussain, who had pursued a university course in IT in Britain, has now reportedly taught graphic design to students in the ISIS terror group in the war zone.

He first came in news when he appeared in an ISIS propaganda video, urging then Prime Minister David Cameron to dispatch troops to fight the terror group, vowing “we’ll send them back one by one in coffins”.

Britain plans to ban the sale of plastic straws and other single-use products and is pressing Commonwealth allies to also take action to tackle marine waste, the office of Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May said.

It said drink stirrers and cotton buds would also be banned under the plans.

May has pledged to eradicate avoidable plastic waste by 2042 as part of a “national plan of action.”

“Plastic waste is one of the greatest environmental challenges facing the world, which is why protecting the marine environment is central to our agenda at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting,” May said in a statement ahead of a Commonwealth summit Thursday.

Leaders from the Commonwealth — a network of 53 countries, mostly former British colonies — are meeting in London this week.

May is looking to deepen ties to the Commonwealth as Britain seeks to boost trade and carve out a new role in the world ahead of the country’s departure from the European Union in March next year.

Britain will commit 61.4 million pounds ($87.21 million) at the summit to develop new ways of tackling plastic waste and help Commonwealth countries limit how much plastic ends up in the ocean.

“We are rallying Commonwealth countries to join us in the fight against marine plastic,” May said.

“Together we can effect real change so that future generations can enjoy a natural environment that is healthier than we currently find it.”

The statement said environment minister Michael Gove would launch a consultation later this year into the plan to ban the plastic items. It gave no details who the consultation would be with.  VOA
