Terror suspect ‘urged jihadists to kill Prince George

A TERROR suspect urged Islamic extremists to ­target Prince George, a court heard yesterday.

Husnain Rashid, 31, allegedly shared the four-year-old’s school address and photo on messaging app Telegram, along with other messages which allegedly could help others identify UK targets such as stadiums.

During a hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London, prosecutors also alleged that Rashid planned to travel to Syria to join Islamic State.

The 31-year-old suspect, who spoke only to confirm his name and address, is charged with one count of preparing acts of terrorism and one count of assisting others to prepare acts of terrorism.

Rashid, of Nelson, Lancashire, was arrested on 22 November by the county’s counter-terrorism police.

He was remanded in custody and will appear at the Old Bailey on 20 December.
