Terrorist pals of Manchester bomber hoping to be free from jail within weeks

TERRORIST brother pals of Manchester Arena bomber Salman Abedi are hoping to be freed from jail within weeks.

The Parole Board is reviewing the cases of Mohammed Abdallah, 31, and his 29-year-old brother Abdalraouf.

Mohammed was caged for ten years at the Old Bailey in December 2017 for joining IS in Syria.

IS recruiter Abdalraouf was jailed for 9½ years in 2016 for running a communications hub from the family home in Moss Side, Manchester.

The brothers were associates of Abedi who killed 22 people in the Arena blast in May 2017.

Teacher Jade Clough, 25, who was injured, said: “They must not be freed unless we have guarantees they are safe.”

The Parole Board said: “Protecting the public is our number one priority.”

Relatives of several of those killed in the attack slammed MI5 for missing a series of chances to halt the terror outrage last week.

Mothers of two of the victims Caroline Curry and Lisa Rutherford said they could “never forgive” the spy agency for “playing a part in the murder of our children”.

If both, or either, of the brothers are released a long and costly intelligence and surveillance operation will need to kick in to track their every move.

Libyan/British dual citizen Abdalraouf was left a paralysed paraplegic in a wheelchair after being shot in the spine in 2011 in fighting in Libya.
