Three al-Qaeda Terrorists Loose On UK StreetsTopics: War on Terror
Three men accused of links with Al Qaeda and the Bluewater (shopping centre in Kent) bomb plotters are on the loose in Britain:
Mohammed Quayyam Khan, a part-time cab driver from Luton, was allegedly in contact with one of terror overlord Osama Bin Laden's most senior lieutenants.Read more here and here.
A second man, former London Underground worker Zeeshan Siddiqui, had planned to launch a suicide attack on the Tube, the Old Bailey was told.
And Islamic militant Sajeel Shahid, thought to be the leader of the banned group Al Muhajiroun in Pakistan, is alleged to have set up a training camp where 7/7 ringleader Mohammad Sidique Khan and Bluewater leader Omar Khyam learned bomb-making.
All three were named in the trial of five terrorists jailed on Monday for plotting to blow up the Bluewater shopping centre or the Ministry of Sound nightclub with a 1,300lb fertiliser bomb.
Quayyam, referred to as Q in court, was described as the link between the fertiliser bomb gang and Al Qaeda in Pakistan, arranging for 7/7 ringleader Khan to attend a training camp there in 2003.
Old Bailey jurors were told how Quayyam's meeting with the fertiliser gang's leader, Omar Khyam, 25, led MI5 to launch an investigation into the Bluewater plot.
Given the codename "Bashful Dwarf" by MI5 surveillance teams, Q was under observation during an investigation into money and equipment being supplied from Luton to Afghanistan. The court heard how Q arranged for both Khyam and Khan to be met at the airport when they flew to Pakistan for training.
Quayyam was said to take orders directly from Abdul Hadi Al-Iraqi, the Al Qaeda number three who was imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay last week.

More on the fertilizer bomb plot:
Remember, these are homegrown jihadists. One of the terrorist's father fought for the British Army in WW-II. People like these are deadly serious about destroying the infidels, and their agenda is clear:
Their target is you and me, our families and friends, and our country and way of life. As Ahmadinejad has said: The West must convert to Islam or die.
