Anwar al-Awlaki, the US extremist of Yemeni lineage, is said to have inspired the terror suspects

A gang of Islamic terrorists had planned to initiate a rucksack bombing campaign across London to overshadow the grisly London attacks of 7/7. This message has been conveyed to the Woolwich crown court on Monday by the prosecution.

The court has been told that two Islamic terrorist suspects had prepared ‘martyrdom’ videos at a Pakistani terrorist training centre. These videos would have been released had the rucksack bombing campaign across London fructified.

It has been alleged that the plotters intended to detonate eight rucksack bombs in suicide strikes to generate mass deaths of innocent Londoners.

The court has been told that 11 terror conspirators had been detained by anti-terrorist officers in the West Midlands. These conspirators had apparently readied themselves to implement terrorist acts in the UK between Christmas 2010 and September 2011. The prosecutor has uttered to the court that the gang was a homemade terrorist gang.

The defendants were motivated by the lectures and writings of Anwar al-Awlaki, a US-born terrorist of Yemeni bloodline, who was an ally of Al-Qaeda on the Arabian Peninsula.

Brian Altman QC, prosecuting, has praised the UK police for sabotaging this devious plot of this terrorist gang, which, if undetected, could have caused carnage on a scale grislier than 7/7.

One of the plotters has even referred to the conspiracy as another 9/11. The 11 detained terror suspects were of Pakistani and Bangladeshi bloodline and have been charged with an assortment of terrorist offences.

One of the three defendants, 31-year-old Irfan Naseer, who hails from Birmingham, possesses a chemistry degree from Aston University.

The prosecution has alleged that Naseer and two other Birmingham defendants, Ashik Ali and Irfan Khalid, had received training in Pakistan vis-à-vis usage of weapons and poisons, which the three hoped to employ in Britain.
