Terror plot gang sentenced

Leaders of a Birmingham terror cell that planned an attack to rival the 7 July and 9/11 atrocities have been jailed.

Irfan Naseer, 31, was sentenced to life with a minimum of 18 years, Irfan Khalid, 28, was given 18 years and Ashik Ali was sentenced to 15 years.

The judge said Naseer wanted to turn part of Birmingham into a "little war zone".

Eight other members of the terror cell will be sentenced later.

Dominic Casciani reports from Woolwich Crown Court.
