Couple Jailed For Life Over London Terror Plot

Couple Jailed For Life Over London Terror Plot

The pair were convicted of planning an attack in the capital to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the 7/7 bombings

Would-be suicide bomber Mohammed Rehman and his wife Sana Ahmed Khan have been jailed for life after being convicted of planning a terror attack in London.

Rehman, 25, had stockpiled bombmaking materials at his Reading home and using the Twitter username “Silent Bomber” he asked his followers which targets they thought suitable for a massive terror attack; Westfield shopping centre or the London Underground.

He had used a profile picture of “Jihadi John” Mohammed Emwazi, to post: “Westfield shopping centre or London underground? Any advice would be appreciated greatly,” accompanied by a link to an al Qaeda media release about the 7/7 bombings.

The Old Bailey heard that on the same day Rehman searched YouTube for “London bombings” and “Shehzad Tanweer” – one of the 7/7 bombers who he referred to as his “beloved predecessor”.

Prosecutors claimed Rehman, who has been sentenced to life with a minimum of 27 years, proved he was “intent on martyrdom” when he also tweeted: “Now I just make explosives in preparation for kuffar lol and when I’ve made the required amount I’ll be wearing them on my chest.” read more
