Pakistani trained Muslims planned '9/11 akin plot' in UK

Irfan Naseer, Irfan Khalid and Ashik AliMr Naseer and Mr Khalid are accused of travelling to Pakistan for training in terrorism, and it is alleged that Mr Naseer also helped others to travel to the country for the same purpose. The court was told that members of the Muslim community put pressure on the three men after finding out they were sending people to Pakistan for terror training. Three out of four men sent to Pakistan came home early after their families and a community leader intervened. The court heard that Mr Naseer devised a cover story about them studying at a religious school recommended by him."Of course, Naseer did not go to Pakistan to study," Mr Altman said. "He went to train in aspects of terror along with Khalid. Here he gives a story which covers the travellers but also himself." The court heard the four younger men were told to say that they had not liked the schools - where students were beaten, the food was bad and buildings invested by rats - and came home for that reason
