British court jails Albanian on terrorist charges


(JTA) — A British court jailed an Albanian Muslim for seven years after weapons and Hezbollah manuals were found in his home.

Krena Lusha, 30, from Derby in southeastern England, was sentenced Dec. 15 after being convicted on terrorist charges, the Jewish Chronicle reported.

Police found gasoline, Hezbollah bomb-building manuals, a suicide bomb belt, a missile, explosives and detonators in his home, the newspaper reported.

They found videos of beheadings and bomb attacks on his computer, as well as jihadist propaganda. Lusha told an Internet chat forum that he wanted to see Americans and Jews killed.

Lusha slipped into Britain illegally in 2000; he will be deported to Albania after serving his sentence.
