Wife Found Guilty Of Helping Husband With Terrorist Plan

A woman from Oldham has been found guilty of helping her husband plan a "jihad at home" terrorist attack on Bury's Jewish community.

Shasta Khan, 38, denied being involved with Mohammed Sajid Khan's plans but was found guilty of engaging in preparation for terrorism and two counts of possessing information useful for terrorism.

Mr Khan, 33, pleaded guilty to the charges at an earlier hearing.

Police discovered a cache of terror-related material after being called to a domestic dispute at the couple's home last July.

These included beheading videos, propaganda glorifying Osama bin Laden, and bomb-making guides.

The jury was told that IED ingredients listed in the guide matched the items found at the defendant's home.

One of the most significant finds at the couple's house was a plastic bag from an electrical shop that contained electrical wires, Christmas tree lights, bulbs and a battery.

An article from an al Qaida magazine entitled "Make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom" offered a step-by-step guide, from how to get ingredients without raising suspicion, to building a bomb, incorporating the use of Christmas lights.

During Mrs Khan's trial at Manchester Crown Court, which lasted almost a month, prosecutor Bobbie Cheema told the court the couple had become "radicalised by material found on the internet such as an al-Qaeda magazine called Inspire".

She will be sentenced along with her husband on Friday.
