Three British Muslims admit bid to bomb Heathrow and Commons with liquid explosives

Three British Muslims accused of plotting to blow up transatlantic planes flying out of Heathrow with liquid bombs admitted today attempting to cause explosions.

Abdulla Ahmed Ali, 27, Assad Sarwar, 28, and Tanvir Hussain, 27, admitted the offence at Woolwich Crown Court, in South-East London.

But they still deny that their bombs were part of a wave of suicide attacks on US-bound passenger jets using homemade devices made of hydrogen peroxide smuggled on board in Lucozade and Oasis soft drinks bottles.

Instead they claim they were only planning to set off small devices around London in protest at UK foreign policy and had no intention to kill or cause injuries.
