Terrorist helpers sentenced in London
LONDON — A London court yesterday convicted five men of helping the would-be bombers of London’s transit system in 2005 evade arrest, sentencing them to prison terms of seven to 17 years.
A jury at London’s Kingston Crown Court convicted Siraj Ali, 33; Muhedin Ali, 29; Ismail Abdurahman, 25; Wahbi Mohammed, 25; and Abdul Sherif, 30, of a total of 22 charges of failing to disclose information about terrorism and assisting an offender.
Five other men are serving long prison sentences for plotting to blow themselves up on subway trains and a bus on July 21, 2005 — two weeks after suicide bombers killed themselves and 52 commuters in the city.
