The four are accused of trying to blow up Big Ben and Heathrow Airport

Big Ben and Heathrow Airport were on the list of potential targets for terrorist attacks, which the British intended to accomplish. As it turned out in court, he was "fascinated" by the ideas and activities of the terrorist group "Islamic State" (IS).

This is the 25-year-old Umar Ahmed Haque, who is a teacher in a religious school. In the court of Old Bailey it became known that, in addition to the above-mentioned goals for terrorist acts, Haque, who sympathized with the IS, considered courts, shopping centers, banks and even the barracks of the Royal Guard as targets for attacks.

As it became known during the trial, during the preparation of the terrorist acts, he showed his students video clips, where the terrorists of the IS are beheading the captives. Thus, he wanted to involve children in the propaganda of the IS and in the "fighting with the infidels".

Haque is accused of preparing terrorist attacks with accomplices - 19-year-old Abuthaher Mamun, 26-year-old Nadeem Patel and 27-year-old Muhammad Abid. All four categorically deny the accusations of preparing terrorist acts. The only thing Haque confessed to was collecting information about terrorism, but, he said, he did not intend to apply it in practice.
