Five men have been found guilty of plotting to kill hundreds in an al-Qaeda-linked bomb plot. The international conspiracy included links to the 7 July 2005 London bombings. Two other men on trial at the Old Bailey were found not guilty.

Omar Khyam

Omar Khyam, 26, Crawley

The group's ringleader, Khyam grew up in a secular household. When he was in his late teens, he travelled to Pakistan, without his family’s knowledge, to attend a mujahideen training camp. In 2001, Khyam travelled to Afghanistan to meet the Taleban. He co-organised a training camp in 2003 attended by many of the plotters - and was instrumental in buying bomb ingredients.
