A CITY banker has been found guilty of bludgeoning a high-class escort to death with a kitchen pestle in a champagne and cocaine-fuelled attack. Zahid Naseem, 48, beat Christina Abbotts 13 times on the back of the head after paying her for sex while she was house sitting for a friend in Crawley, West Sussex. Naseem, a dad-of-two who could earn up to £250,000 a year as a freelance investment consultant, hired sex workers for nearly a decade.

Christina, who was born in the West Midlands and lived in London, was found after she failed to turn up to her 29th birthday party in South Kensington. She is thought to have been dead about 12 hours before she was found. Naseem was discovered lying on the sofa in the next room "feigning unconsciousness" after Ms Abbotts' death in May. When he was initially … [Read more...] about Banker found guilty of bludgeoning high-class escort to death with kitchen PESTLE on her 29th birthday

In the shocking image - credited to Remah Media Production- a suited man is seen holding a huge knife behind his as he lurks near a crowd of cheering music fans. The caption to the photo - which has been posted on Twitter - reads: "Wait for our surprises" and it is signed "Islamic State", reports PJ Media. The threat comes in the wake of high-profile terror attacks at concerts in the UK and in France - which left dozens dead and many more injured. Earlier this year we revealed how pro-ISIS fanatics also issued a chilling terror threat to the city of Manchester just one year after 22 were murdered at an Ariana Grande concert. They posted a picture of a jihadi lurking on the city's streets. It was sent out by one of the Islamist death cult's propaganda wings. Emergency services rushed to the scene after the bomb blast in Manchester The … [Read more...] about Chilling new ISIS threat warns of jihadi knife attacks on Europe pop concerts
