7. Lee Rigby’s killer is tormenting his victim’s family by still waging jihad from behind bars
‘He spends his time working out and is strong, physically imposing and a very intimidating presence,’ says a source at the prison. ‘But it’s not just that — his devotion to radical Islam is total, unbending and all-consuming.
‘Because of that he is always giving the staff a hard time. He refers to them as kafirs and infidels and is constantly making threats against them.
‘All the time he is on the offensive, upping the tension. There have been altercations — spitting and throwing cups of urine at them. He regards himself as an active terrorist, as still being very much 'in the fight'.
To those who know anything of Adebolajo’s history that will come as little surprise. In May 2013 he masterminded the murder of off-duty soldier Lee Rigby near his barracks in Woolwich, South-East London.

The Chinese immigration authorities are reportedly denying Germans visas to visit China because they have Turkish-sounding names; the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce suspects that Turkey's support for Uyghurs in China is behind the move, Wirtschaftswoche reports.
The Chinese immigration authorities appear to be discriminating against Germans with Turkish-sounding names and those who have spent a long time in Turkey, according to the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK).

Treier warned that the issue could affect trade relations between China and Germany. In 2016, trade turnover between the two countries was €169.9 billion ($198.2 billion), making China Germany's biggest trade partner, ahead of France.
