Hunted terror suspect in burqa CCTV images released

CCTV images have been released of a terror suspect being hunted by police.

Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed was last seen at a west London mosque on Friday afternoon.

He entered the building wearing Western-style clothes, but CCTV images issued by Scotland Yard later show him leaving with his face and body fully covered by the traditional Islamic garment.
