BBC report:

 

A man who incited a German terror cell to commit mass murder with a car, explosives and a meat cleaver has been given a life sentence.

Fatah Abdullah tried to learn how to make a pressure cooker “bomb” to aid Germany-based conspirators Omar Babek and Ahmed Hussein.

The 35-year-old encouraged the others to set off explosions, drive into a crowd and attack people with weapons.

At the Old Bailey, he was told he must serve a minimum term of nine years.

Abdullah had previously admitted a charge of inciting terrorism.
