An ISIS supporter, 32-year-old Husnain Rashid, initially called for an attack against the young prince’s school. He admitted to that and a string of other terror-related offenses in a London court on Thursday.
Rashid wrote messages online encouraging militants to carry out attacks, including posting a picture of Prince George — son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and third in line to the throne — next to a superimposed silhouette of a jihadi fighter, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said.He also gave the full address of the young prince’s school in southwest London, which the boy began attending last September, and wrote: “even the royal family will not be left alone.”
