Graduate jailed over terror offence

An engineering graduate who applied to work at the Olympics has been jailed for nine months for a terror offence.
Norman Idris Faridi, 32, was turned down after applying to work last summer at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, where some football matches for the London 2012 Games were held.

The Kenyan national was later found to have a "terrorist's manual", 39 Ways To Serve And Proceed In Jihad, on his external hard drive and in a deleted file.

Faridi, of Pen-y-Wain, Cathays, Cardiff, was also found to have downloaded a video of extremist preacher Abu Hamza on to his mobile phone.
