britain ROUND-UP: Life likely for terror backer.

NOTORIOUS Muslim convert Abu Izzadeen was last night facing life imprisonment after he was found guilty of fundraising for and inciting terrorism overseas.

Izzadeen was convicted on Wednesday for trying to raise donations to help terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan and incite other Muslims to go abroad and take up arms as terrorists.

He faces a maximum sentence of life imprisonment for the offence of inciting terrorism abroad alongside three other men.

Simon Keeler, 36, was also convicted of both charges. Abdul Saleem, 32, and Ibrahim Hassan, 25, were convicted of inciting terrorism but cleared of fundraising for terrorists.

Two more, Shah Jilal Hussain and Abdul Muhid, both 25, were found guilty of fundraising for terrorists.

But Hussain will be sentenced in his absence today after he absconded while the jury were deliberating.
