Five men have been convicted of stockpiling bomb-making instructions and purchasing explosive chemicals as part of a plot to carry out a terrorist attack in Australia. A jury deliberated for a month before finding the men guilty on Friday of conspiring to commit a terrorist act on Australian soil. They face up to life in prison. The men were arrested in a series of raids on their homes in 2005. Prosecutor Richard Maidment said during the trial that the raids turned up bomb-making instructions and militant Islamist material - including footage of planes flying into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, and images of beheadings. The prosecutor also said the men purchased explosive chemicals and guns between July 2004 and November 2005.
