An Islamic terrorist told his brother to "pray to Allah for acceptance of my deeds" in an e-mail sent two days before the terrorist died driving a flaming Jeep into the Glasgow airport.
Kafeel Ahmed also told his brother to be strong and don't tell anyone what he was about to do, and afterward, "try to continue as normal but appear shocked."
The brother, Sabeel Ahmed, was convicted Friday in England of failing to tell police about the mission.
Sabeel Ahmed, a doctor, did not read the e-mail until the evening after the attack but still did not tell police about it. He admitted Friday to failing to disclose information to police and was sentenced to 18 months in jail.
He will be released from custody and voluntarily deported to India almost immediately because of time in jail he has already served.
Knowing that the police were closing in, he instead tried to drive a burning vehicle into the airport on June 30. But he could not get through the glass doors and suffered severe burns from which he later died.
Kafeel’s e-mail directed Sabeel to online documents containing his will and instructions on how to mislead investigators. Part of it read: “This is a project I was working on for some time now. Everything else was a lie and I hope you can forgive me for being such a good liar. It was necessary.”
The message added: “Inshallah by the time you get this message I should have achieved one of the two goals by the will of Allah.”
Bilal Abdullah, 28, and Mohammed Asha, 27, will go on trial this year for conspiracy to cause explosions.
