ALI: 'I TOLD THE DOCTORS I AM NOT SAFE'

BLACKHEATH A paranoid schizophrenic who axed his housemate to death after walking out of hospital left a note on the body saying: 'I told doctors I am not safe'. Ahmed Ali, 39, told medics at the scandal-hit Oxleas Hospital Trust he had stopped taking his medication just days before killing Abdullah Barre Jama, 45, in a frenzied axe attack. He confessed to feeling tired and 'persecuted' and was due to be transferred to a psychiatric unit for further treatment. Ali had a 15-year history of mental health problems, including violent urges towards himself and others, and Mr Jama himself told doctors his flatmate was 'crazy'. But Ali walked out of hospital on April 30, 2009, and repeatedly stabbed Mr Jama in the head, neck and arms at their flat in Blackheath, southeast London, on May 3, 2009.

DAWSON: VEIL WOMAN JAILED FOR ANOTHER SIX MONTHS

STROUD GREEN; FINSBURY PARK A Muslim woman who sparked controversy when she refused to remove her niqab in court refused to stand as was jailed for six months today (tues) for terrorising a security guard at a mosque. Rebekah Dawson, 22, threatened and intimidated Daudi Yusuf at Finsbury Park Mosque in north London in a row over non-Muslim women being allowed inside without wearing veils. Dawson refused to give evidence during a four-day trial at Blackfriars Crown Court after being ordered by the judge to remove her niqab if she went into the witness box. She claimed her religion prevented her removing the veil in the presence of men but Judge Peter Murphy ruled it was of 'cardinal importance' that a jury could see her face while she gave evidence.
