HUNT FOR MAN AWAITING TRIAL FOR TERROR OFFENCES AFTER HE ESCAPES FROM PRISON

A manhunt is underway after a man who was awaiting trial for terror offences escaped from HMP Wandsworth Prison.

The public are being advised not to approach Daniel Khalife who escaped earlier on Wednesday.

The 21-year-old is set to go on trial after he was accused of leaving fake bombs at a military base where he served as a soldier.

Khalife is 6ft 2ins and is believed to be wearing a white t-shirt, red, white chequered trousers and brown boots, according to police.

He has links to Kingston and Met Police officers believe he is likely to be in the London area.

Commander Dominic Murphy, Head of the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command said: “We have a team of officers who are making extensive and urgent enquiries in order to locate and detain Khalife as quickly as possible.

“However, the public can help us as well and should anyone see Khalife, or have any information as to where he might be, then please call 999 or the immediately.

“I also want to reassure the public that we have no information which indicates, nor any reason to believe that Khalife poses a threat to the wider public, but our advice if you do see him is not to approach him and call 999 straight away.”
