Jeddah - Yasmine El Tohamy - IS supporter pleads guilty to St. Paul’s Cathedral bomb plot
A British Daesh supporter pleaded guilty on Friday to plotting to bomb St. Paul’s Cathedral and a hotel in London.
Safiyya Amira Shaikh, 36, from Middlesex in southeast England, admitted to the preparation of terrorist acts and dissemination of terrorist publications. She admitted the offenses at Central London Criminal Court.
A prosecution case summary said Shaikh made contact with someone who could prepare explosives and went on a reconnaissance trip to scope out the cathedral.
Shaikh expressed a desire to target a church or somewhere “historical” on a day like Christmas or Easter to “kill more,” the summary said.
She confided her plans to two others, both of whom were undercover police officers.
Speaking over an encrypted messaging service, she revealed to them that she “would rather die young and get to Jannah (paradise) quickest way possible,” and that she “wanted to do something big ... Killing one kafir (infidel) is not enough for me.”
She also shared terrorist documents through groups using the Telegram messaging app between August 2019 and October 2019, and prepared a pledge of allegiance to Daesh, London’s Metropolitan Police said.
Shaikh was born Michelle Ramsden to a non-Muslim family and converted to Islam in 2007. She is to be sentenced in May.
