‘Suicide bomber’ protester in jail

`The man who caused outrage by dressing as a suicide bomber during London protests over the Mohammed cartoons was arrested and taken to prison today, police have revealed.

Omar Khayam, 22, was pictured outside Denmark’s embassy in London wearing a simulated suicide bombing outfit to denounce the cartoons, first published in a Danish paper, satirising the prophet Mohammed.

The student was given six years in prison in 2002 for possessing crack cocaine with intent to supply and is still on licence after being released last year halfway through his sentence. [..]

Khayam’s arrest in Bedford was carried out at the instigation of the Home Office for breaching the terms of his licence.’
