Life sen­tences for couple who plot­ted terror at­tack

Nuneaton Telegraph - - NEWS -

A COUPLE who plot­ted a deadly terror at­tack on Lon­don to co­in­cide with the 10th an­niver­sary of the July 7 bomb­ings have each been given life sen­tences.

Mr Jus­tice Baker told Mo­hammed Rehman, 25, and his now ex-wife Sana Ahmed Khan, 24, that the rad­i­calised ex­trem­ists were a sig­nif­i­cant dan­ger to the pub­lic.

The couple, who were sep­a­rated by two prison guards in the dock, were ex­pres­sion­less and stared straight ahead as they sat qui­etly at the Old Bai­ley.

The jury unan­i­mously found the couple guilty of preparing of an act of ter­ror­ism in May this year.

Rehman was sen­tenced to life with a min­i­mum of 27 years. He was also sen­tenced to 12 years to run con­cur­rently for possessing an ar­ti­cle for ter­ror­ist pur­poses.

Khan was sen­tenced to life with a min­i­mum of 25 years.
