A Commons committee has heard that Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed, who escaped from a mosque in West London, was involved in fighting, attack planning and recruiting for Al Shabab in Somalia.

An 84-year-old woman has died, after being involved in a collision with a motorbike, as she crossed the road in Acton.
She was pronounced dead at the scene on Friday evening.
Her next of kin have been informed.
A man has been jailed for a string of burglaries targeting elderly and disabled victims, some as old as 92.
John Connors was sentenced to eight years in prison at Isleworth Crown Court. He was found guilty of eleven offences in total across the East Acton and Hammersmith areas.
Mr Connors would trick his way into his victims' homes pretending to be from the 'water board', then distract them while he stole valuables and cash. Many of his victims were pensioners aged over 75 suffering from physical disabilities, including blindness.
Detective Constable Andy Griffin said Connors was a "career criminal" who "preyed" on vulnerable victims.
