Samantha Lewthwaite terror cell 'was preparing attack'
Anti-terror officers, boosted by reinforcements drafted in around the country, moved on Grant and his Kenyan housemate after five days of covert surveillance in the coastal city of Mombasa.
A search of the men's two-bedroom flat later unearthed chemicals identical to those used by Lewthwaite's husband, Jermaine Linsday, to kill 26 people on the Piccadilly Line under Kings Cross on July 7, 2005.
Lewthwaite, who converted to Islam as a teenager, is believed to have been working with Grant and others to carry out a terror attack on a hotel in Mombasa or shopping mall in Nairobi, the Kenyan capital.
"We went to Mombasa to arrest terrorists believed to be planning an attack in the city, who were in the last stages of preparations," Sgt Peter Muli told Grant's trial.
Grant, 29, from Newham, London, his housemate, Fouad Abubakar Manswab, and his Kenyan wife, Warda Breik Islam, 19, face two counts of possessing explosives and plotting to make a bomb. (...)
