A college drop-out who sought revenge for his uncle’s death in Syria has been convicted of preparing to attack Downing Street and kill the PM.
Naa’imur Rahman, 20, was convicted at the Old Bailey after he was trapped in a major undercover operation involving the FBI, MI5 and police.
Rahman approached officers posing online as fellow extremists, asking them for help with an attack.
He met two and repeatedly asked for bombs – leading to his conviction.
He has now been jailed for a minimum of 30 years
