Birmingham terrorists found guilty

Irfan Naseer, 31, Irfan Khalid, 27, and Ashik Ali, 27, have been found guilty of planning a huge terrorist attack in the UK, during which they discussed the possibility of charging into a synagogue with guns if they could not create a bomb.

A judge in Woolwich Crown court found the three men from Birmingham guilty of being “central figures” in a bomb plot that could have caused mass deaths.

During the trial the court heard a taped conversation in which Naseer told a fourth man, Mohammed Rizwan, who was not on trial: “Even if we can’t make a bomb... get guns yeah from the black geezers, Africans and charge into some like synagogue [sic] or charge into different places.”
