Four Plead Guilty To London Stock Exchange Bomb Plot

Four men have admitted to planning an attack on the London Stock Exchange. Mohammed Chowdhury, Shah Rahman, Gurukanth Desai and Abdul Miah pleaded guilty at Woolwich Crown Court. Five other men have also pleaded guilty to further terrorism offences.

Members of the group, from Stoke, Cardiff and London, conspired to send five nail bombs to targets across London. A supposed hit list, found at the Isle of Dogs home of Chowdhury, contained the addresses of Boris Johnson and two rabbis, as well as the American Embassy and the Stock Exchange.

Security services arrested the men after close surveillance. The men are not thought to have acquired any explosives or other harmful materials. They will be sentenced next week. The Telegraph seems to have more details than most reports.
