‘Soldier of Allah’ jailed after making hospital bomb threat on Facebook

Leroy McCarthy, 22, who went by the name Abdullah Mahmood, made the comment to police officers after he was arrested for a series of previous offensive posts, including one where he spoke about bombing Furness General Hospital, in Cumbria.
