Irfan Naseer, 31, Irfan Khalid, 27, and Ashik Ali, 27, were today found guilty in a British court on Thursday of planning a terror campaign using six to eight suicide bombers, armed with guns, to cause “mass death” and “carnage” on the streets of Britain, The Telegraph reported. Reporter Tom Whitehead wrote, "Police believe had they been successful it would have been the largest terrorist atrocity on home soil." Naseer and Khalid were found guilty of traveling to Pakistan for terror training. There they produced martyrdom videos to be released by al-Qaeda after they had blown themselves up. Whitehead added, "In a first for the UK, Naseer, a pharmacy graduate, had planned to extract ammonium nitrate – used as main explosive – from sports injury cold packs."
