The gruesome plan came to light during hearings of two Islamic State fanatics who blew up a Sikh temple in the industrial German city of Essen during wedding celebrations.

Mohammed O., 17, one of the temple bombers who carried out the assault in April which wounded four people, planned to sell the toxic ices before blowing himself up in the midst of the children.

It was exposed just months after a  was thwarted.

The sikh duo were found guilty earlier this year and sentenced to less than three years in jail each. The new trial will take place on December 7 where prosecutors are seeking higher sentences.

Yusuf T., 17, was the leader of the so-called Temple bomber group. The young Salafists first formed their murder gang on Whatsapp and built bombs from ingredients ordered from online retailer Amazon.

Then the final question was put to his leader: “Can I make Istis hadi Amaliya (suicide) in the kindergarten too?”

He also suggested in the two page letter written on A4 paper if it might also be possible to crash the van into the kindergarten. And further he asked if it was permissible for him to “rape the girls of the enemies of the Prophet Muhammad.”

He urged Yusuf T. secretly to obtain a mobile phone so that he could make phone calls to plot the outrage. Investigators admitted at the trial in Essen that phone numbers of Isis sympathisers were later found on a device owned by T.

Yusuf”s Defender Burkhard Bahri said: “My client suffered a deep impression in pre-trial detention and has renounced the Salafist scene. He wants to have nothing more to do with it and will therefore testify fully in court. “

Both are sitting in juvenile detention until their full trial begins in the next few weeks.

The head of the police in the north-western city of Essen, Frank Richter, called the attack “religiously motivated terror by the Islamist scene” and said both boys had links to Islamist groups in the region.

A third person was arrested but was later released.

The bomb damaged part of the temple building and blew out some of the windows. It exploded after a wedding party and the people who were injured had been guests.
