A Muslim couple inspired by al-Qaida propaganda on the Internet were jailed Friday for plotting terrorist attacks on the Jewish community of Manchester in the UK.
Muhammad Sajid Khan, 33, was sentenced to at least seven years in jail, with the eventual length of his sentence to be determined by prison authorities, and his wife, Shasta, 38, was sentenced to eight years in prison.
The couple from Oldham, in greater Manchester, bought material from supermarkets to assemble homemade explosive devices.
They were planning to attack Jewish targets in Prestwich, an area with a large, mainly Orthodox, Jewish community.
