Al Qaeda archterrorist scalded by boiling oil in prison

The 22-year-old inmate is accused of scarring for life Dhiren Barot, who was jailed for life for leading a British-based terrorist cell that plotted bombings across the world.

Barot’s lawyer claimed he had the boiling oil thrown over him during the attack in the high security Frankland Prison in County Durham…

After the alleged attack, which left Barot, 35, with excruciating burns, a news blackout was imposed to protect medical staff from possible attack while he was treated at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary.
