Stoke-on-Trent terrorists say jail sentences over links to bomb plot are 'too harsh'

FIVE activists involved in a plot to set up a terrorist training camp are challenging their sentences which they claim are too harsh.

Usman Khan.The men – three of whom come from Stoke-on-Trent – all appealed the length of their jail terms in London's Appeal Court yesterday.

They include Usman Khan, now 22 but who was just 19 when he became involved in the plot, who was one of nine men sentenced over linked conspiracies to bomb the London Stock Exchange and establish terrorist training schools in Kashmir.

Khan, of Persia Walk, Tunstall, was caged indefinitely for public protection – which is almost identical to a life term – at London's Woolwich Crown Court in February last year.
