Terrorist To Daughter: 'I Have to Do This'

Before he committed suicide in the 2005 subway bombings in London, Mohammed Siddique Khan made a home video of himself bidding farewell to his young daughter telling her to take care of her mother.

In the video, which was shown to jurors in a United Kingdom courtroom earlier today, the terror ringleader is seen cradling his baby girl, whispering to her that he is going to fight jihad "for the sake of Islam".

The video was made in November 2004, before Khan was to head on a trip to Pakistan to receive terror training, according to prosecutors. It was played during a trial of three men who are accused of aiding the London bombers.

"I have to do this for our future," Khan says to his baby girl. "I'm going to really really miss you," he says.

Khan is heard saying that he is sorry that he will miss out on seeing his daughter learn to walk. "I love you to bits," he says.

On July 7th 2005, Khan and his fellow suicide bombers killed over 50 people in a series of coordinated attacks on London's underground and bus systems.
