A man is due to be sentenced today after admitting murdering a grandfather from Birmingham and planting bombs near mosques in the West Midlands to increase racial conflict.
Pavlo Lapshyn, aged 25, killed Mohammed Saleem, 82, just five days after he arrived to work in the country.
He also planted bombs near mosques in Walsall, Wolverhampton and Tipton.
The Tipton device contained hundreds of nails and exploded just an hour before Ramadan prayers.
He stabbed Mr Saleem in the back just yards from his home on April 29.
He had been making his way home from prayers at his local mosque.
