Supporters rally behind terrorist Abdul Nacer Benbrika who plotted MCG bomb
by Alex White and James Dowling
A jailed terrorist who plotted to kill 80,000 people is still considered a risk by security agencies.
Algerian-born Abdul Nacer Benbrika, who led a terror cell planning to bomb the MCG on Grand Final day, is believed to still hold a strong influence over young extremists in Victoria, despite being held in the high-security unit at Barwon Prison.
Several devotees in Melbourne's northern suburbs of Preston, Brunswick and Coburg have praised Benbrika as their spiritual leader online. They labelled the cult figure a "king" and a "martyr" on several Facebook pages.
