Four guilty over 21/7 bomb plot


news.bbc.co.uk

Four men have been found guilty of plotting to bomb London's transport network on 21 July 2005.

Muktar Ibrahim, 29, Yassin Omar, 26, Ramzi Mohammed, 25, and Hussain Osman, 28, were convicted at Woolwich Crown Court of conspiracy to murder.

The men had tried to detonate rucksacks laden with explosives on the Tube and a bus, killing themselves and passengers.

But the bombs failed to go off sparing the city a repeat of the horrors of the 7/7 attacks, two weeks earlier.

The jury still needs to decide the fates of two other defendants, Manfo Kwaku Asiedu, 34, and Adel Yahya, 24. They said it had nothing to do with two weeks before (7/7) but it was intended as a protest against the war in Iraq - bit of a heavy handed way to protest isn't it? Pretend to detonate bombs and then run away without at least shouting something about your supposed cause. And why leave a suicide note if you know nothing will happen?

I am undecided if pleas of Not Guilty are weird or not. They are happy to blow themselves up but not take credit for the attempt? Who knows what goes through the minds of these evil people at the best of times.

(Reuters) - A second string of bombs on London transport two weeks after suicide strikes in 2005 were a genuine plot intended to kill and not a stunt, a lawyer for one of six men on trial in the case said.

Suspects in the second wave of bombs had previously claimed that they did not intend to kill, merely to cause panic.

But a lawyer for one of the six turned on the suspected bomb maker on Thursday, and said the goal was a strike that would have dwarfed the July 7 attacks that killed 52 commuters.

The jury has failed to reach a majority verdict (I believe the judge said he would accept 10-2) on the other two defendants. The prosecution will be asked tomorrow if they wish for a re-trial.

The four that were convicted will be sentenced tomorrow as well.
