Five Britons were found guilty on Monday of plotting to carry out al Qaeda-inspired bomb attacks across Britain, potentially killing hundreds at targets ranging from nightclubs to trains and a shopping centre.


The gang planned to use 600 kg (1,300 lb) of ammonium nitrate fertiliser to make explosives to be used in bombings in revenge for Britain's support for the United States in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, prosecutors said.
