A 16-year-old London girl was found guilty on Monday for plotting an attack on the iconic British Museum and thus became Britain’s youngest convicted female Islamic state terrorist after a court found her guilty.
Safaa Boular was linked to the ISISI terrorist Naweed Hussain and met him on the social media platform Instagram and within three months of chatting, she started falling for him and decided to marry Naweed.
Her hopes were dashed out when she was halted at the airport by the authorities in August 2016 while travelling with the family to Morocco and her passport was ceased.
Safaa planned to join Naweed in ISISI but was later on confronted by the undercover agents. She was later on informed that Hussain was killed in a drone attack followed by which she decided to plot the attack at Syria on April 12.
When Saffa was charged by the police authorities, she passed the motive to her mother Mina Dich, 44 and sister Rizlaine, 22 and they all were communicating in the Alice Wonderland themed tea party code language.
However, her mother and sister were being tracked by the police while buying knives for the attack at the potential sites. They were also joined by the fourth person Rizlaine’s friend Khawla Barghouthi. Saffa was earlier denied for plotting the attack but on Monday, she was found guilty.
Britain’s top counter-terror police officer talked about the plot and said, “It involved a family with murderous intent, the first all-female terrorist plot in the UK connected to ISIS”.
He said further, ‘All three women were filled with hate and toxic ideology and were determined to carry out a terrorist attack”.
The date for the sentenced of the Safaa has not been decided yet while all the other three women will be sentenced on June 15.
