Four radical home-grown Islamists have admitted an al Qaeda-inspired plot to detonate a bomb at the London Stock Exchange.

The Muslim fundamentalists’ group wanted to send five mail bombs to various targets during the run up to Christmas 2010, discussed launching a ‘Mumbai-style’ atrocity and even set off a small explosion at a meeting in Cardiff.

A hand-written target list found at one of the defendant’s homes listed the names and addresses of London Mayor Boris Johnson, two rabbis, the American Embassy and the Stock Exchange.

The total of nine men admitted various terror crimes at Woolwich Crown Court and will be sentenced next week.

‘Lynchpin’ Mohammed Chowdhury, 21, and his London accomplice Shah Rahman, 28, were followed by undercover detectives on November 28, 2010, observing Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the London Eye and the Palace of Westminster.

The conspiracy involved nine defendants – the London duo, three from Cardiff and four from Stoke – but was stopped by undercover anti-terror police before firm dates could be set for attacks.

Though no firm dates were set and no homemade bombs created, the defendants had the wherewithal to do it, it was alleged.

Abdul Miah
Omar Latif

 

Usman Khan
Mohammed Shahjahan

 

Mohibur Rahman
Nazam Hussain

Guilty: (Top row and left on 2nd row) Shah Rahman, Gurukanth Desai and Abdul Miah, who were part of the quartet guilty of the most serious terror charges in the case. On the 2nd row, right, is Omar Latif, from Cardiff. Left to right on the third row are Usman Khan and Mohammed Shahjahan from Stoke and on the bottom row are Mohibur Rahman and Nazam Hussain, also from Stoke

They possessed the al Qaeda magazine Inspire, which contained a feature: ‘Make A Bomb In The Kitchen Of Your Mom.’

The threats were not just facing London.

 

The Stoke quartet talked about leaving homemade bombs in the toilets of their city’s pubs and discussed travelling abroad for terror training.

Chowdhury and Rahman had Bangladeshi backgrounds like their Welsh accomplices, whereas the Stoke terrorists had Pakistani backgrounds.

They also discussed how to make a pipe bomb.

It is also reported that Miah and Desai triggered a small explosive device at a meeting in Wales.

Their agenda is said to have included launching a Mumbai-style attack that would mimic the 2008 atrocity in India that saw Muslim extremists arrive at the port by boat and slaughter 166 people.

The massacre was eventually stopped by Indian commandos, who killed all the attackers except Mohammad Ajmal Kasab, who was arrested and remains in custody.

  1. How can they ever release a terrorist from prison? The minute any of these guys get out, what’s to say that they won’t go right back to carrying out terrorist attacks? They need to be in a POW camp, not a prison – and they need to be there indefinitely. Failing to make the proper distinction between war and crime is one of the West’s greatest mistakes. These guys are enemy soldiers, plain and simple. So they’ve got British passports in their pockets…big deal, get over it – they are enemy soldiers just the same.
