Series 2, Episode 2

Police have uncovered a large scale fraud at a mosque in Birmingham. Mohammed Rachid, one of the leaders of the mosque, was believed to be redirecting charitable funds into bank accounts for his own use, and is due to be deported later this month.

Parkmount mosque was also attended by two men who have died in an explosion near a school in central Birmingham. No-one else was hurt and police are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

The team suspected that Parkmount mosque had been taken over by extremists lead by Mohammed Rachid. They had found a young agent, Johnny, and sent him in in an attempt to find out what was being planned. Johnny was quickly uncovered and brutally tortured. But he did manage to discover that the mosque had a “nest of angels”, a group of young men being trained to sacrifice themselves as suicide bombers. They needed to know more, but couldn’t do anything unless they could find a suitable agent.

Ruth Evershed began a secondment from GCHQ, and quickly made her mark by discovering a crack Algerian agent had turned up at Scotland Yard. Harry takes a risk, and decided to trust Ibhn Khaldun and offer a passport in return for his help. He was set up with all the gadgets he might need, but he threw them away and failed to turn up to the arranged meetings. Tom began to fear they’d been tricked.

Inside the mosque Khaldun told Rachid that he’d come to help the cause. He told them he’d infiltrated MI5 and gave them money. Tom’s suspicions looked like they were right. Then as Tom slept he had a surprise visit from Khaldun. He was under constant watch at the mosque, and this was the only time he could pass on information. He warned Tom that the first suicide bomb attack was planned for the following day. Tom wanted to rush in with special branch, but Khaldun wanted time to persuade the boy that he was making a mistake.

The following day, after Khaldun and the suicide bomber had set off, Tom burst into the mosque and arrested Rachid on suspicion of fraud. The suicide bomber had positioned himself in a school playground, but the area was clear, and Khaldun seemed to be successfully persuading the boy not to ignite the bomb. But he misjudged and the boy ignited the bomb. Seeing what was happening, Khaldun threw himself at the boy to try and stop him, but sacrificed himself in the process.
