Jihad for Retards: Nail bomber blames ‘war on Islam’
Nicky Reilly has learning difficulties and Asperger’s Syndrome
Nicky Reilly, 22, from Plymouth, last month admitted attempted murder and preparing an act of terrorism at Exeter’s Giraffe restaurant in May.
The Muslim convert’s note insisted he was not “brainwashed or indoctrinated”.
On Friday, a court put back Reilly’s sentencing until 30 January to allow doctors to assess his mental state.
Defence barrister Kerim Fuad said several doctors were concerned that Reilly’s extremist views, which had appeared to have dissipated, could be triggered again in the future.
The court heard how dozens of customers fled in panic when three soft drink bottles exploded in the restaurant’s toilets on 22 May.
Reilly had intended to run out into the packed dining area but could not open the toilet cubicle door. The caustic soda devices detonated in his hands, leaving him badly injured. More at Winds of Jihad
