Nine jailed over London Stock Exchange bomb plot
Nine men have been jailed for their involvement in a plot to bomb the London Stock Exchange.
The men, all British nationals, belonged to an al-Qaeda inspired group.
Three – Mohammed Shahjahan, Usman Khan and Nazam Hussain – received indeterminate sentences for public protection.
The other six received jail terms that ranged from five to sixteen years.
Their plans involved placing an explosive device in the stock exchange toilets, as part of a campaign of al Qaeda-inspired attacks across the British capital in the run-up to Christmas 2010.
The conspiracy included plans to post bombs to the United States Embassy and the home of London Mayor Boris Johnson.
Police foiled the plot at an early stage before firm dates were agreed or explosive devices assembled.
