Men cleared of helping 7/7 bombers to be sentenced





Ali, 25, and Shakil, 32, both from Leeds, admitted knowing the bombers - but denied helping them.

At Kingston Crown Court, Ali and Shakil were cleared of conspiracy to cause explosions, but found guilty of a second charge of conspiracy to attend a training camp in Pakistan, after being arrested in 2007 at Manchester Airport.

A third man, 28-year-old Sadeer Saleem, was acquitted of all charges. The men were originally tried in 2008, but the first jury failed to reach verdicts against them.

The three are the only people to face any charges in relation to the 7/7 London bombings.
