London: Teenage Extremist Pleads Guilty in Terror Plot


A teenage extremist is facing jail after planning to launch a nail-bomb attack on an Elton John concert on the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.

Haroon Ali Syed, 19, pleaded guilty to researching targets including a concert by the singer in Hyde Park, as well as Buckingham Palace and Oxford Street.

He was said to be planning to carry out a bomb attack ‘on the scale of 7/7’ and also spoke of attacking shoppers in central London.

Syed’s older brother, Nadir, was convicted in 2015 of buying a 12-inch kitchen knife and plotting to behead a poppy seller. He was jailed for life in June last year, but after his conviction he threatened to behead prison officers in Belmarsh jail.
