The British-born Islamic terrorists who planned to blow up at least 7 transatlantic flights from London to the US, potentially murdering more than 1,500 people, were jailed for life yesterday. Abdulla Ahmed Ali (above centre), Assad Sarwar (above left) and Tanvir Hussain (above right) were found guilty last week of conspiracy to murder by detonating liquid bombs on airliners flying from Britain to North America. Mr Justice Henriques ordered Ali, the self-confessed leader of the plot, to serve at least 40 years in prison. Sarwar was given a minimum sentence of 36 years and Hussain a minimum of 32 years. The judge said the men were guilty of “the most grave and wicked conspiracy ever proven within this jurisdiction. The intention was to perpetrate a terrorist outrage that would stand alongside the events of 9/11 in history.” But they can relax, because the way British justice is going, at the first sign of ill health they’ll probably be released on compassionate grounds to fly off at taxpayer’s expense to a Muslim country in time for the next Ramadan anyway.
