Residents were shocked to discover a former neighbour could be a suicide bomber.
A Crawley man is believed to have carried out a suicide bombing in Syria. He has been named by the BBC as 41-year-old Abdul Waheed Majid.
He is believed to have carried out a suicide truck bombing in the city of Aleppo in Syria last Thursday (February 6).
Anti-terrorism police searched a house in Martyrs Avenue, Langley Green, this morning (Wednesday February 12).
Bernadette Murphy moved in two doors from the house nine months ago.
She said: “I don’t know the family very well. They keep themselves to themselves.
“I’ve seen people in and out. A lot of movement there over the last few days.
“It just looks like a regular family.”
A neighbour who lives opposite the house added: “They used to keep themselves to themselves but they were very nice people.
“They always said good morning.”
