'Musketeers' sentenced to life in jail for UK terror plot

Four men who styled themselves as the "musketeers" and plotted a knife and bomb attack have been sentenced to life in prison.

Naweed Ali and Khobaib Hussain, from Birmingham, and Mohibur Rahman and Tahir Aziz, from Stoke-on-Trent, were found guilty of preparing terrorist acts.

Ali, 29, Hussain, 25, and Rahman, 33, were given life sentences and ordered to serve a minimum of 20 years behind bars.

Aziz, 38, was also sentenced to life in jail, with a minimum term of 15 years due to his lesser part in the plot.

He was the only one of the four present in the dock as the sentences were announced and was said to be "devastated" at being found guilty.
