two brave UK Muslim soldiers:
Police praise Muslim soldiers who acted as 'bait' for beheading gang
By MATTHEW HICKLEY, BEN TAYLOR and DAVID WILLIAMS
Two British Muslim soldiers targeted by the alleged beheading gang were used in an extraordinary "sting" operation to snare their assassins, it has emerged.
The courageous pair agreed to act like "tethered goats" in an attempt to catch the extremists plotting to kidnap them.
The soldiers - who are not thought to have told their families that they were potential targets - were placed under unprecedented surveillance for weeks as officers waited for the terrorists to strike.
