Stamford Bridge - An Islamic extremist serving a prison sentence for plotting to behead a British soldier led two other prisoners in a four-hour attack against a prison officer in an East Yorkshire jail.
A prison officer was held hostage for four-hours and beaten, at HMP Full Sutton, by three prisoners who also stabbed him. The prison's armed riot team eventually came to his rescue. According to the Daily Mail the officer was held in a cleaning room, beaten with mop handles, and told he was going to die. The prisoners threatened to pour caustic soda in his eyes
According to the H & E Riding Mail police have linked the attack to the murder of Lee Rigby in Woolwich last week. The prisoners involved apparently became enraged when a prison Imam called for prayers for the murdered soldier.
The attack was led by Islamic extremist Parviz Khan, according to the Evening Standard. British born Parviz was sentenced in 2008 as the ringleader of a group who plotted to kidnap and behead a British soldier. Khan was allegedly radicalized by the controversial preacher Abu Hamza.
