That is the word from Wales Online (Tom Tracey/November 15) which said police foiled the plan two days before the June 30th Principality Stadium performance. According to the newspaper, police raided and searched the boys’ parents’ residence where he resided. They found a handwritten note intended to be read after his supposed martyrdom. The note’s contents spoke of his allegiance to the Islamic State. It also contained a list of things to do during and after the attack. Among these items was attacking non-Muslim first responders and running down other people with his car. Fingerprint and handwriting analysis of the note matched the boy. In addition to the note, the boy had a video of the Nice truck attacker on his phone. He also had a hammer and a knife in his school bag.The youth, who is currently on trial, has denied all terror related charges.
