The publicly-funded British Broadcasting Company is caught spreading ‘fake news’ about this terrorist — twice.
Both the BBC London and the BBC South East Twitter accounts referred to Iraqi refugee and convicted terrorist Ahmed Hassan as a ‘Surrey teenager’.
Hassan has been convicted of placing the bomb on a train that exploded at the Parsons Green tube station.
The broadcaster, funded by the British public through a state-enforced compulsory license fee, provided the dubious description in a breaking news tweet on its BBC South-East account, after Hassan was sentenced for carrying out a terror bombing on a London tube train.
“BREAKING ‘Dangerous and devious’ Surrey teenager jailed for life for Parsons Green Tube bombing, in which 51 people injured’, read the social media post — earning a string of incredulous responses from users who felt the broadcaster was attempting to obscure Hassan’s origins as a supposed alleged ‘child refugee’.
The sentencing judge, Charles Haddon-Cave, believes that Hassan is actually older than he claims to be.
BBC London had tweeted that Hassan was a ‘Surrey teenager’ then deleted the tweet amid fierce backlash on Twitter.
Here is a screenshot of the now-deleted tweet.
It is also not quite true that Hassan was “jailed for life”.
He did, in fact, receive a 34-year minimum term — almost ten years less than far-right extremist Darren Osborne, who targeted Muslims in Finsbury Park — rather than a whole-life tariff, although the BBC does clarify this in the article their tweet links to.
Hassan was allowed to stay in Britain after illegally immigrating via Calais, France, despite telling the authorities he had been “trained to kill” by the Islamic State — a revelation which has caused public outcry, given right-wing activists and journalists such as Martin Sellner, Brittany Pettibone, Lauren Southern, and Lutz Bachmann are being detained and deported at the border for much less.

ISIS. This radical terrorist organization is a virus… a worldwide plague. These a$$holes are willing to kill their own women and children to annihilate who they call “infidels.”
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. F**K ISIS.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
