Mohammed Hamid and MI6

Mohammed Hamid was born in in Tanzania and moved to the UK with his family aged five.

He became involved with various criminals and began drinking and smoking cannabis.

He became 'a thief, robber, burglar and crack cocaine addict'. (Profiles: The terror gang members)

In 2001 he was quizzed by police in connection with a kidnap investigation.

Was he, at this point, recruited by the security services?

In the UK, on 26 February 2008, Mohammed Hamid, the 'terrorist mastermind' who called himself 'Osama bin London' and 'trained the 21 July bomb plotters' was convicted of soliciting murder. 'Bin London' urged terror camp trainees to outdo 7/7

Mohammed Hamid, 50, worked with Abu Hamza's right-hand man, Atilla Ahmet, 43, described as 'the number one al Qaeda operator in Europe'.

Abu Hamza is suspected by some of having links to the security services.

"There is a wealth of evidence to suggest that Britain’s security services sheltered Hamza for many years and even worked with him." - (Britain: Why did it take so long to bring Abu Hamza to trial?)

Hamid trained the 21 July bomb gang at 'remote camps' across Britain.

A BBC documentary crew filmed one terror camp for the show Don't Panic I'm Islamic.

The BBC is suspected by some of having links to MI6 and MI5.

Hamid reportedly trained the failed 21 July London bomb plotters Muktar Said Ibrahim, Ramzi Mohammed, Hussain Osman, Yassin Omar and Adel Yahya at a farm in Great Langdale, Cumbria, in 2004.

Hamid reportedly organised a paint-balling trip attended by Mohammed and Osman in July 2005 near Tonbridge, Kent, just two weeks before the failed London bomb attacks.

Mousa Brown, arrested in 2006, was found not guilty of being involved in the terrorism training camps run by Hamid.

"It was blatantly obvious to the police that I was innocent," he said. "They knew [from the beginning]. They knew after I was charged." (Top terror recruiter found guilty)

Brown said MI5 approached him after police had charged him and had offered him a deal.

"They said to me that they knew that I'm not a terrorist and 'we can help you'," he said.

"They wanted me to become an informant in the community. I will never forget that. (Top terror recruiter found guilty)
