Five men were convicted of terrorist offenses Monday for helping the failed bombers of London's transit system evade arrest. Siraj Ali, 33; Muhedin Ali, 29; Ismail Abdurahman, 25; Wahbi Mohammed, 25; and Abdul Sherif, 30, were between them convicted of 22 charges of failing to disclose information about terrorism and assisting an offender. Six men are serving long prison sentences for attempting to blow themselves up on subway trains and a bus on July 21, 2005 - two weeks after suicide bombers killed themselves and 52 commuters in the city. The main charges of the bombs, made from hydrogen peroxide and flour, did not detonate and no one was hurt.
