A man has been convicted of attempting to murder a Muslim woman and 12-year-old schoolgirl in “revenge” for Islamist terror attacks.
Paul Moore, 21, told relatives he was “doing the country a favour” after ramming his car into the victims in Leicester on 20 September – five days after the Parsons Green Tube bombing.
Zaynab Hussein, who is Somali and wears a headscarf, was walking down Acer Close after dropping her children off at school when Moore hit her with his Volkswagen.
Nottingham Crown Court heard that the driver laughed as he returned to the woman, as she lay wounded on the road, to run her over with all four wheels.
Ms Hussein sustained life-changing injuries after suffering a broken leg and fractures to her pelvis and spine.
