A man accused of helping plan a series of failed terrorist bombings in London two years ago has pleaded guilty to having information useful to terrorists. Adel Yahya, 24, of London, was due to face a second trial next week on charges of conspiracy to murder, Metropolitan Police said. A jury convicted four men of conspiracy in July but was unable to agree on verdicts for Yahya and Manfo Kwaku Asiedu, 34. The charges stemmed from failed attempts to detonate explosives on London subway trains and a bus on July 21, 2005 - just two weeks after terrorists killed themselves and 52 bus and subway passengers in the capital.
