The chicken shop worker arrested over the Parsons Green bombing had been in the Jungle migrant camp in Calais after seeing ‘no future’ for him in Egypt.
Yahya Faroukh, 21, was arrested on Saturday night as he finished a shift at a fried chicken takeaway.
His family have insisted he is innocent and ‘loves the UK’. They left Damascus, in war-torn Syria, in 2012 and moved to Egypt, where their ill father died recently.
He took a boat to Italy from Egypt in 2013 after growing disillusioned with life there. He then made his way to the UK the same year on a lorry.
