An Islamic State terrorist has been found guilty of a plot to behead the Prime Minister in a suicide attack on the heart of Government.
Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, planned to bomb the gates of 10 Downing Street, kill guards and then attack Theresa May with a knife or gun.
He had pledged allegiance to IS and collected what he thought was an explosives-packed rucksack when he was arrested last November.
The drifter, originally from Birmingham, thought he was being helped by an IS handler when in fact he was talking to undercover officers.
Following an Old Bailey trial, Rahman, from Finchley, north London, was found guilty of preparing acts of terrorism in Britain.
Midway through the trial, he admitted helping his friend Mohammed Aqib Imran to join IS in Libya by recording an IS sponsorship video.
Imran, 22, from south-east Birmingham, was found guilty of having a terrorist handbook after the jury deliberated for 13 hours.
The jury is still deliberating on a charge against Imran of preparing terrorist acts abroad.
