Accused ‘had limitless ambition’

A gang of British Islamic terrorists drew up a list of targets across the UK with “limitless” ambition, a court heard. Canary Wharf, a gas pipeline, oil refineries and nuclear power stations may have been in their sights, a jury was told. Woolwich Crown Court heard how eight men plotted to take liquid bombs disguised as drinks on board at least seven transatlantic jets. Six of them recorded chilling suicide videos attacking Western governments and warning further attacks were to come, the court was told. One accused the British of being too busy watching TV soap operas to care about anything, adding: “As you kill, you will be killed.” Two of the men were also bugged discussing whether they should take their wives and children on the suicide missions.
