H/T Weasel Zippers
Convicted ‘shoe-bomber’ Richard Reid, who was found guilty in 2003 of trying to blow up a transatlantic jetliner, is on hunger strike.
Court documents in the U.S. show that the London-born terrorist has been refusing food for several weeks and is being force-fed.
It is believed the hunger strike could be related to a lawsuit he has filed against prison officials.
Reid’s lawsuit alleges prison authorities have repeatedly prevented him from following the tenets of his Sunni Muslim faith.
