Militant group had link to Woolwich

A week after the murder of soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich, BBC London has learnt that a senior member of Somali militant group al-Shabab spent time there lecturing at a mosque before he was asked to leave.

One of the two main murder suspects is believed to have had links to the group.

Abukar Awale, an Anti-khat campaigner, and Raffaello Pantucci, of the Royal United Services Institute, appear in this report by Guy Smith.
