5 convicted in Oz terror plot


The five, four of whom are of Lebanese descent and one of Bangladeshi origin, now face possible life sentences after the New South Wales State Supreme Court found them guilty of conspiring to commit acts in preparation for a terrorist attack.

The court was told that the men had stored firearms, bomb making chemicals and explosives manufacturing instructions from July 2004 to November 2005, in Australia’s largest terrorist conspiracy.

The five were arrested after a sixteen month surveillance which ended in November 2005.
One of the arrested, according to prosecution, had been trained at a Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist camp in Pakistan.
