Its quite clear now that the police will not be releasing any further information about the four suspected terrorists arrested on December 21st. All we have are their names and addresses:
Nazam Hussain, 25, of Grove Street, Cobridge, Stoke-on-Trent.
Usman Khan, 19, of Persia Walk, Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent.
Mohibur Rahman, 26, of North Road, Cobridge, Stoke-on-Trent.
Abdul Mohammed Shahjahan, 26, of Burmarsh Walk, Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent.
We are told that they were planing to blow up targets in London although it may be possible that other targets were being discussed but this information has yet to be made public by the police.
I have to admit that I'm very frustrated at this lack of information about probably the most serious development (terrorists living in this city planning mass murder) in Stoke-on-Trent in the last decade.
I have a question for all of those reading this blog - did any of the alleged terrorists attend Keele University?
I have been told (don't know if its true) that the Islamic society at that university has a few hot-heads within their number.
Also, It could be that the four named above may have links with one or more of the mosques in this city, again, any information would be appreciated.
I would appreciate it anyone with any information on this matter (either confirming or denying it), please get in touch and I will be sure to pass on any evidence to the public.
