Two of Britain's most dangerous Islamic terrorists moved to new prison - because they complained fellow inmates were 'too white'
by Gwyneth Rees
Two of Britain's most dangerous terrorists have been moved to different prisons after complaining their fellow inmates were "too white".
Dhiren Barot and Omar Khyam asked to be transferred from high-security Frankland prison near Durham.
Barot masterminded a radioactive bomb plot involving limousines packed with nails and explosives and Khyam plotted to blow up Bluewater shopping centre in Kent.
They said they were at risk from other inmates - who are predominantly white - and claimed the environment was "dangerous" to ethnic minority prisoners. It is thought they had received death threats and attacks.
Although their requests were initially turned down, Barot, who is serving a minium of 30 years, has since been moved to Belmarsh in south-east London.
Khyam has also been moved to Full Sutton near York.
