Terrorist to stay in attack jail
Dhiren Barot
Dhiren Barot plotted mass murder in the UK and US
A convicted British al-Qaida activist must stay in the jail where he was attacked, the High Court has ruled.

Eesa (formerly known as Dhiren) Barot needed skin grafts after hot oil and boiling water was allegedly poured over him in Frankland Prison in Durham.

The 35-year-old refused an offer to be moved within the institution and sought to be relocated to another jail.

However, a judge dismissed his appeal, saying there was no evidence of a general risk of attack at Frankland.

An inmate, since moved to another prison, has been charged in connection with July's alleged attack.
