Police prepare for Muslim extremist clashes on Anjem Choudary’s release


Choudary's release from HMP Frankland, Co Durham, where he is understood to be in a "separation centre", will come halfway through his 5½-year sentence. Next week marks the first anniversary of the London Bridge terrorist attack, masterminded by one of his former acolytes. Eight people died and 48 were injured in the June 3 atrocity. Anti-terrorism officials at Scotland Yard are concerned Choudary's release will heighten community tension, given his history of radicalising young Muslims and agitating far-right groups.
