Nine men jailed for London Stock Exchange bomb plot

London , Fri, 10 Feb 2012 ANI

London, Feb 10(ANI): A London Court has jailed nine men for plotting to bomb the London Stock Exchange and conducting a terror training camp.


Three of the men received indeterminate sentences for public protection at London's Woolwich Crown Court.


Mohammed Shahjahan was jailed for a minimum term of eight years and 10 months, while Usman Khan, 20, and Nazam Hussain, 26, were ordered to serve for at least eight years.


The court heard they had planned to raise funds for conducting a terror camp in Pakistan and recruiting Britons to attend it.


Prosecutor Andrew Edis said the nine men possessed "almost every famous jihadi publication" including copies of an online al-Qaeda magazine called Inspire which carries features such as how to "Make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom".


The judge described all men, who are British nationals of Bangladeshi and Pakistani origin as Islamic fundamentalists and added they should not be released until they were no longer a public threat.


Justice Wilkie said labelled their plot as a "serious, long-term venture in terrorism" that could also have resulted in atrocities in the UK.


"It was envisaged by them all that ultimately they and the other recruits may return to the UK as trained and experienced terrorists available to perform terrorist attacks in this country, on one possibility contemplated in the context of the return of British troops from Afghanistan," the BBC quoted the judge, as saying.


All nine men were arrested in December 2010. Each pleaded guilty to terrorism charges on the eve of their trial at Woolwich Crown Court.(ANI)
