Video: IS-inspired tube attacker guilty of attempted murder


An Islamic State-inspired fanatic is facing years in jail for trying to copy the killers of Fusilier Lee Rigby by beheading a random stranger at a Tube station.

Somali-born Muslim Muhiddin Mire, 30, attacked 56-year-old musician Lyle Zimmerman with a rusty knife and threatened four other travellers as he ran amok through the ticket hall at Leytonstone Underground station in east London.
