Woolwich attack: Calls for Anjem Choudary to be placed under a new terror control order
by Robert Mendick and Robert Watts
Calls were growing last night for Anjem Choudary, the radical Islamist accused of brainwashing one of the Woolwich murder suspects, to be placed under a new terror control order.
It is estimated that one in five terrorists convicted in Britain over the past decade were either members of or linked to al-Muhajiroun, the extremist group founded by Choudary and the exiled preacher Omar Bakri Mohammed.
Choudary, 46, and a lawyer by training, has never been convicted of any offence, much to the frustration of British authorities.
