Nine men accused of stockpiling bomb-making chemicals in Australia's largest alleged terrorist conspiracy pleaded not guilty to all charges Thursday. The nine, all Muslims, are each charged with conspiring between June 2004 and November 2005 to carry out an attack with bombs or other weaponry to advance a "political, religious or ideological cause." They face a maximum penalty of life in prison if convicted. Their lawyers have said they maintain they are innocent.
