| |

A Muslim couple from the Manchester region of Britain has been convicted for plotting to murder Jews. The two will be sentenced Friday.

Mohammed Sajid Khan, 33, confessed to engaging in conduct in preparation for acts of terrorism. Shasta Khan, 38, denied involvement in the plan, but a jury found her guilty of preparation for acts of terrorism and possessing information useful for committing or preparing for an act of terrorism.

The two had read Al-Qaeda propaganda and were learning to prepare bombs. Data taken from Shasta Khan’s satellite navigation device showed that the two had made multiple trips to Jewish neighborhoods in Manchester in order to look for targets.

Police found materials for bomb-making in their home.
