Islamic tries to woo gangland killer
AN accused terrorist ringleader has reportedly tried to convert Melbourne's notorious gangland murderer Carl Williams to Islam in prison. Abdul Nacer Benbrika, who has been charged with directing a terrorist organisation and is awaiting trial, approached Williams in the hope he would embrace the path of the prophet Mohammed.
But Williams, who was this month sentenced to 35 years in jail for the murder of three gangland rivals, is believed to have immediately rejected the self-proclaimed cleric's advances.
Williams and Benbrika are separated in different areas of the maximum security Acacia unit at Barwon prison near Geelong, southwest of Melbourne, but the newspaper understands the Algerian-born accused terrorist was able to make contact with Victoria's worst serial killer while the pair were in the jail's exercise yard earlier this year.
