Daniel Khalife Arrested: Investigation Report
The escape of the 21-year-old terror suspect from Wandsworth prison on Wednesday sparked an extensive search that delayed flights and led to increased checks at British ports. Khalife, a serving member of the British Army, was in prison awaiting trial on terrorism charges for allegedly planting fake bombs at a military base, according to the UK’s PA Media news agency. He denied all three charges against him, the news agency said. Khalife escaped from prison by tying himself to the bottom of a delivery van while dressed as a chef. When police located the truck two miles east of the prison, Khalife was gone and all that was left of his escape were the burly officers discovered under the truck. The incident sparked criticism of the prison service and the government and led to the launch of an independent investigation.
