This is the first picture of the terror suspect who was shot dead by police after two people were stabbed in Streatham, south London, earlier today.
Although the suspect has not been formally identified yet, DAC Lucy D’Orsi of the Met Police said in a statement tonight they are confident he was Sudesh Amman, 20.
Amman left prison just a matter of days ago after serving half of his more-than three year sentence, it is understood.
He was sentenced in December 2018 for possessing and distributing terrorist documents.
The then 18-year-old, who was described as ‘knife-obsessed’, was found with a stash of bomb-making and close-combat manuals – including one titled ‘How to Make A Bomb in Your Kitchen’.
Amman, from Harrow, Middlesex, also shared Al-Qaeda propaganda on a family WhatsApp group, exposing relatives as young as 11 to violent material.
The North West London College student shared bomb making schematics via Skype and an entry of a seized notebook allegedly outlined his “goal” to die as a martyr, a court heard at the time.
Half a sentence sounds reasonable. It’s not like he was Julian Assange or anything.
