UK outraged over Mumbai-style bomb gang's release in 6 years

London, Thu, 02 Feb 2012 ANI

London, Feb.2 (ANI): Britishers across the board have expressed outrage over the proposed release of a terror gang who planned a Mumbai-style bomb blitz in London in less than six years.


The four Muslim fanatics are said to have struck an extraordinary 11th-hour plea bargain that will allow them to serve a smaller and lighter sentence, the Daily Mail reports.


The four Muslim fanatics intended to unleash a Christmas campaign of atrocities with targets including the Stock Exchange, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the Palace of Westminster and the London Eye.


They and five others had been facing a five-month trial at Woolwich Crown Court and could have expected sentences of 20 years.


But at the 11th hour, they decided to plead guilty after a judge indicated they would receive lesser sentences for admitting the plot.


The Crown wanted to avoid both the estimated 2.5 million pound cost of a high-security trial and the possibility of acquittals.


Tory MP Patrick Mercer said a term of five or six years 'does not seem particularly serious' for acts of terrorism which could have killed many innocent people. (ANI)
