Brit man's beheading video 'found' in Muslim terror suspect's home
London, Oct 15 (ANI): A Birmingham Muslim bookseller accused of "priming people for terrorism" had video footage of British hostage Ken Bigley being beheaded in his compound, a jury was told.
Ahmed Faraz has been charged with 30 counts of possessing and distributing extremist material intended to radicalise Muslims around the world. Footage of 81 beheadings were found in the premises of his Sparkhill resident, the BBC quoted the prosecution, as saying.
The 32-year-old Islamic studies graduate denies the charges.
Faraz ran Maktabah bookshop and publishers in Birmingham, which produced works that ended up in the hands of terrorists including Mohammed Sidique Khan, the leader of the July 7 bomb plot, Kingston Crown Court heard.
Prosecutor Max Hill said that the DVDs and media files depicted "the murders by beheading of a number of individuals, including the British citizen Ken Bigley, who some will remember".
The 12 jurors were then shown a portion of the film, which was found by police on a disc at Birmingham, where Faraz was living in 2007.
Bigley, from Liverpool, was taken hostage in Baghdad in September 2004 and beheaded more than three weeks later. (ANI)
