A JIHADI terrorist is to be released early — days after an inquest revealed how fanatic Usman Khan was freed on licence to kill at London Bridge.
Yusuf Sarwar, 29, got 13 years in 2014 after joining a terror group in Syria where he plotted to kill Brits.

Now parole board chiefs have decided he can be released four-and-a-half years early next month — a move experts say puts the public at risk.
Meanwhile, officials are also considering letting an al-Qaeda boss with links to 7/7 bombers return to Britain’s streets.
Terror fanatic Rangzieb Ahmed, 45, was jailed for life in 2008 for plotting attacks against the UK but is to go before a parole board later this month.
Chris Phillips, former National Counter Terrorism Security Office chief, said: “What type of system puts the public at risk like this? This is yet another disaster waiting to happen.”
Terror think tank the Henry Jackson Society called the move “criminally dangerous”.
He fooled officials into believing he was rehabilitated when he was released on licence not even halfway through a 16-year term for terror offences.

The Parole Board said: “Parole reviews are undertaken thoroughly and with extreme care. Protecting the public is our number one priority.”
An MoJ spokesman said of Sarwar’s release: “Our new laws mean terrorists will spend longer behind bars.
“If released they face strict conditions including GPS tags, curfews and restricted internet access, and can be returned to prison if they breach them.”
