Jailed: Abbas Iqbal, who gathered a stockpile of weapons at his family home in Blackburn, was found guilty of dissemination of terrorist publications and preparing for acts of terrorism

“Two brothers who filmed Al Qaeda-style propaganda in a park and dubbed themselves ‘The Blackburn Resistance’ were yesterday convicted of terrorist offenses.

Abbas Iqbal, 24, gathered a stockpile of weapons at the family home in Blackburn, while his brother, Ilyas, 23, studied and compiled information on guerrilla warfare.

During the four-week trial, the jury was shown mobile phone footage off all three men dressed in camouflage and crawling across a town centre park in broad daylight.”
