This newly-released video shows an ISIS supporter pretending to faint when he was arrested by police over a string of terrorism offences.
Husnain Rashid, 32, was filmed falling to the ground when he was confronted by officers at his parents’ home in Nelson, Lancashire, in November last year.
The former website designer was jailed for a minimum of 25 years today after admitting to preparing and encouraging acts of terrorism.
Woolwich Crown Court heard how Rashid used an encrypted messaging app to urge extremists to carry out ‘lone wolf’ attacks, including one on Prince George shortly after he started school at Thomas’s Battersea, south London, last September.
