Welsh Muslim college that taught Lee Rigby's killer was under influence of radical preacher
A controversial Muslim cleric who supports suicide bombers was behind the curriculum at a top Islamic college in Wales where one of Lee Rigby's killers studied, it's emerged.
The work of Egyptian Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who was banned from Britain in 2008, helped shape courses at the Llanybydder-based European Institute of Human Sciences attended by Michael Adebowale.
As well as backing suicide attacks on Israelis chairman of the International Union of Muslim Scholars Al-Qaradawi is reported to have said it's okay to beat women "lightly", lash gays and suggested rape victims should be punished if dressed immodestly.
