UK NRI cabbie jailed for murdering US soldier in Iraq

NRICRIfraudAnis Abid Sardar, 38, from London has been sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of 38 years for making the roadside bomb (IED) that killed US soldier Sergeant Randy Johnson 34, in Baghdad in 2007.

Police arrested Sardar after the FBI”s Terrorist Explosive Device Analytical Centre found his fingerprints on other bombs he had made which were almost identical to the one that killed Johnson.

The head of special crime and counter terrorism at the Crown Prosecution Service said Sardar is a highly dangerous man who created bombs so large that not only did they tragically kill Sgt Randy Johnson, but they also put other lives in danger.

Sardar is the first person to be convicted in a British court for taking part in the Iraqi insurgency.
