Ibrahim Adam, a 24 year-old Briton from East London disappeared in May 2007 along with his older brother Lamine. Both men had been put under a control order after they had previously tried to travel to Iraq and were stopped in Syria. Nevertheless they managed to leave the UK to wage Jihad abroad.
Another brother of Ibrahim and Lamine Adam, named Anthony Garcia, was jailed for life in 2004 for plotting to blow up a night club in London with a fertiliser bomb. Garcia had attended an al-Qaida training camp in 2003 from which wrote a letter to his younger brothers telling them about the virtue of martyrdom and Jihad.
In August Ibrahim Adam and another British Islamist named Mohammed Azmir Khan were killed in a U.S. drone strike in the Waziristan region of Pakistan. Adam was one of the most wanted terrorists in the UK. His passport photographs were found in an al-Qaida safe house in Norway alerting intelligence agencies around the world.
Mohammed Azmir Khan, a 37-year old father of three, and the Adam brothers were part of a group of Islamic militants from Illford (Essex). Khan´s brother Mohammed Jabbar Ahmed known as “Abdul Jabber”, was killed by a U.S. drone in North Waziristan on September 8 2010.
