Summary: 

A teenager who planned to carry out a terrorist outrage in London using a hunting knife, or else use the knife to steal a Rolex to fund his travel to Syria has been sentenced to five years in prison today (28 June). He was prosecuted by the CPS Counter Terrorism Division who said Ahmed had viewed violent propaganda videos to prepare for an attack. The videos included a Daesh-produced film he downloaded in June 2017 showing how to carry out a so-called “lone wolf” attack. It featured advice on where to stab someone and gave recommendations of the type of knife to use, which turned to be similar to the one in Ahmed’s possession.
