'Three Musketeers' guilty of planning UK terror plot

Three men who dubbed themselves the Three Musketeers have been found guilty of plotting a terror attack on a police or military target in the UK.

Naweed Ali, 29, and Khobaib Hussain, 25, both of Sparkhill, Birmingham, and Mohibur Rahman, 33, of Stoke-on-Trent, were convicted at the Old Bailey.

They were arrested in August last year in an undercover police sting using a fake courier firm.

A fourth man, Tahir Aziz, 38, from Stoke-on-Trent, was also found guilty.

They had all denied preparing terrorist acts.

The court heard MI5 bugged Ali’s car and uncovered a pipe bomb and meat cleaver hidden in a shopping bag.

The men claimed the incriminating evidence was planted by an undercover officer, known as “Vincent”, who posed as the boss of a fake courier firm called Hero Couriers.
