Prominent Muslims in the UK received visits from the police after a video purportedly showing an al-Shabaab militant potentially making threats against them.
British Muslim commentator Mohammed Ansar and Mohammed Shafiq were among those reportedly targeted in the video.
Nice visit from the police at midnight to talk to me about the fact I'm in the latest al shabab terror video. Erm, as a potential target.
More security briefings tonight following threat by Al Shabaab against me and a number of prominent figures. This calls for more tea.
Thank you for all the concern, love and support I've received after al Shabab threats against me. I will never give into terrorism
