Guilty as charged: Three British Muslims convicted in bomb plot


Three British Muslim men were found guilty on Thursday of planning a string of bombings that prosecutors said could have been deadlier than the July 7, 2005, attacks on London’s transport network.

Irfan Naseer, 31, Irfan Khalid, 27, and Ashik Ali, 27, were convicted of being “central figures” in an extremist plot to set off eight rucksack bombs and possibly other timed devices in crowded areas.

The three men, all from Birmingham, central England, had denied charges of engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorist acts during their trial at Woolwich Crown Court in London.

Police said it was the most significant terror plot to be uncovered in Britain since the 2006 conspiracy to blow up transatlantic airliners using bombs in drink containers.

Two of the men – Naseer and Khalid – travelled to Pakistan for terror training while Naseer also helped others to travel to the country for the same purpose, the court heard.


  1. British government shouldn't waste tax payer's money on this scums..just hang Three pakistani-British Muslim men and seport their families back to the land of pure!

  2. When they commit crimes to for Islamic sharia and when they defend themselves in the court of law they use British human rights legislation. They simply forget about Islamic Sharia.

  3. No Muslim in any democratic secular country seek punishment for convicted Muslim criminals as per Islamic sharia. They want sharia only to destroy the secular and demographic fabric of tolerant society.

  4. My plea to the British government is to not send them to prison, simply give them lethal injection instead.
