Four radical Islamists have admitted an al Qaeda-inspired plot to detonate a bomb at the London Stock Exchange.
The Muslim fundamentalists’ group wanted to send five mail bombs to various targets during the run up to Christmas 2010 and discussed launching a ‘Mumbai-style’ atrocity.
A hand-written target list found at one of the defendant’s homes listed the names and addresses of London Mayor Boris Johnson, two rabbis, the American Embassy and the Stock Exchange.
