Junead and Shazib Khan

A delivery driver from Luton has been convicted of plotting to kill a US airman outside a base in East Anglia.

Junead Khan, a supporter of so-called Islamic State (IS), was found guilty of preparing terrorist acts.

Khan had driven past RAF Lakenheath and other bases on his delivery route, and had discussed staging a car crash and attacking a soldier with a knife.

At Kingston Crown Court, he and his uncle Shazib Khan were also convicted of preparing to join IS in Syria.
