21/7 Bombers Get Life

DO we have to pay for them to be housed and fed in jail?

Four men convicted of the 21 July bomb plot have been imprisoned for life, with a minimum tariff of 40 years each.

Muktar Ibrahim, 29, Yassin Omar, 26, Ramzi Mohammed, 25, and Hussain Osman, 28, were found guilty on Monday.

Their plot to detonate explosives on three Tube trains and a bus in 2005 was a “viable…attempt at mass murder,” said judge Mr Justice Fulford QC.

Two other men – Manfo Kwaku Asiedu and Adel Yahya – face a retrial after the first jury failed to reach a verdict.


Sue Hemming, head of counter terrorism at the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), said the men had seen the “devastation” caused on 7/7 and “could have been in no doubt about the consequences of their actions” on 21/7.”These men planned a co-ordinated attack on the London transport system. Over many months they designed and built their own bombs.

“While the implementation of their plan was incompetent, their aim was clear. They wanted to kill and maim on a massive scale.”
