Anjem Choudary inspired Belgian militant group

Radical UK cleric Anjem Choudary has been convicted of inviting support for so-called Islamic State.

This is not the first time that Anjem Choudary has been convicted of an extremism related crime. In 2012 he was found guilty by a court in Belgium of promoting hate and violence.

Our reporter Chris Vallance uncovers evidence from that, and other more recent cases, which show how Anjem Choudary inspired the creation of a Belgian militant group Sharia4Belgium.
