The UK's first female suicide bomb plotter has told the police during an interview that she was planning a Sri Lanka-style terror attack on St Paul's Cathedral as she is jailed for 14 years, Daily Mail reported.
It said Safiyya Shaikh, 36, who was wearing a black hijab, smiled and raised her index finger in a salute associated with ISIS as she was taken to the cells.
Shaikh, born Michelle Ramsden in Hounslow, west London, told undercover police officers she wanted to 'do a piece of history and kill as many kuffar as possible' in a day of carnage across the capital.
The single mother ran a chat room dedicated to martyrs and told followers of her determination to become Britain's first female suicide bomber.
She was addicted to heroin but said she always wanted to 'do something big' and that killing one infidel was 'not enough for me.'
After setting off the two bombs, she wanted to blow herself up on the London Underground, it can be disclosed.
Shaikh told an undercover officer: 'So this is really what I want but I would like to kill a lot brother. Until I'm killed. This is what I really want. Bi'idnillah [god permitting].
'I am ready for jannah [paradise] but I want to do big things, insha'Allah [god willing].'
Shaikh shared images of Charles and Diana's wedding at the St Paul's and wrote: 'If I had choice I blow the church to ground. With kuffar in it,' adding a laughing emoji.
Interviewed by police, Shaikh confessed that she planned to carry out a suicide bomb attack like the terrorist attack in Sri Lanka in order to gain access to heaven.
Asked what she was planning, she said: 'Obviously if I had the rucksack, you know like what happened in Sri Lanka, like that. I was going to do the same thing - blow everything up.'
