Zarein Ahmedzay pleaded guilty last year to being part of a suicide-bomb plot which was to target the city’s transport network in an attack which would have echoed the July 7 London underground bombings.
Yesterday, as he gave evidence against an alleged fellow plotter, Adis Medunjanin, Ahmedzay claimed that, for the past year, the US government has been paying him $100 a month (£63) while he has been in prison.
Ahmedzay is one of several terrorists who is testifying against Medunjanin.
The convicted British terrorist Saajid Muhammad Badat struck a bargain with the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) in which he was given a reduction of two years in his sentence after agreeing to testify against other terrorists, including Medunjanin.
