The ‘kids’ (unaccompanied alien minors?) were from Iraq and Syria. Both received government-supported foster care from a couple known for their welcome to needy ‘kids.’
Sorry, this is the first thing I thought of – Al Wilson’s 1969 song “The Snake”:
Of course we have to wonder if they were even kids when they got into the UK, but that’s a story for another day….
Here is just one of many accounts today of what is going on with the latest UK Islamic terror investigation.
From Sky News:
Two men who are believed to have been fostered by the same couple are being questioned by police over the Parsons Green bombing.
Police investigating the Parsons Green Tube bombing are questioning two suspects after searching three properties over the weekend.
An 18-year-old was arrested at Dover ferry port on Saturday morning and a 21-year-old was arrested at a fried chicken shop in Hounslow, west London, on Saturday night. Neither have been named.
The younger man is suspected of planting the device, which exploded on a District Line train in London on Friday morning, injuring 30 people.
He and the other man, reported to be from Syria, are being questioned by police on suspicion of offences under the Terrorism Act.
Both men are believed to have spent time in the care of Penelope and Ronald Jones, who received MBEs [Member of the Order of the British Empire—ed] for services to children and families in 2010.
…. the 18-year-old who has been held is understood to be an Iraqi orphan who had moved to Britain when he was 15.
