Police believe Marham kidnappers were part of larger terror group

Detectives investigating the attempted kidnapping of an RAF serviceman from RAF Marham in Norfolk have said the men are likely part of a larger terrorist group operating in the UK. The serviceman who has not been named but is believed to be in his 20s was accosted by two men while out jogging near the base on Thursday but managed to fend them off and escape.

In the wake of the incident, military bases throughout Britain have been put on high alert. Police have speculated that the attackers were planning a Lee Rigby style killing and that RAF Marham was chosen because it is the home of the Royal Air Force’s Tornado GR.4 fleet which is at the forefront of war against Daesh-ISIS. The fear now is that another attempt maybe made at another base in the UK.

Detective Superintendent Paul Durham told the press;

While the victim only witnessed two attackers, there may have been more than two people in the vehicle and given the nature of the attack, it is likely they were part of a larger team. This is important because I do not want to deter any potential witnesses from coming forward; it is the vehicle we are interested in, regardless of the number of people seen inside.

  1. It is really difficult not to slip into some really unacceptable political views with these people. Nice, Munich and what now seems to be fast developing into a hundred other places. And why are these fanatics not condemned more loudly??
