9 sentenced for London terror plot

10 February 2012, 07:29

London - A British judge has sent nine men to prison for plotting to set up a terrorist training camp and bomb the London Stock Exchange.

The British Muslims pleaded guilty last week.

Mohammed Chowdhury, 21; Shah Rahman, 28; Gurukanth Desai, 30; and Abdul Miah, 25, admitted planning to plant a home made bomb in the stock exchange toilets. Two others admitted lesser charges.

Woolwich Crown Court Judge Alan Wilkie sentenced the six men on Thursday to between five and 16 years.

Three others admitted planning to set up a terrorist training camp in Pakistan and were given "indeterminate," or open-ended, sentences.

The defendants were brought together through radical Islamist groups and nurtured plans to attack high-profile targets. They were arrested in December 2010.
