Man jailed for life after running over Muslim woman in Leicester

A man has been jailed for life for ramming his car into one woman and trying to hit a schoolgirl in a series of Islamophobic hate crimes he intended as a retaliation for terrorist attacks carried out by Islamist extremists in the UK.

Paul Moore had shown no remorse over the attacks, the judge said, as he sentenced him to a 20-year minimum term for attempted murder, attempted grievous bodily harm with intent and dangerous driving at Nottingham crown court on Tuesday.

Zaynab Hussein, 47, sustained serious fractures to her leg, arm, pelvis and spine during the assault, in which Moore drove a car on to the pavement and hit her from behind, before turning it around and driving over her again.

Shortly afterwards, he drove the car at his second victim, a 12-year-old Muslim girl walking to school, knocking her bag out of her hand.
