UK: More beards, more bombs
An al-Qaeda inspired gang planned to attack Britain with up to eight suicide bombs because the 7/7 terrorists had not done enough damage, a court has heard.
The jihadist group, from Birmingham, wanted to carry out “another 9/11” and planned to hit crowded public places to cause “mass death” and “carnage in the name of Allah”.
Naseer told one potential recruit that 7/7 had “gone a bit wrong”.
Their attack would have been even more devastating than the London bombings on July 7, 2005, which left 52 innocent people dead, Woolwich Crown Court was told.
