Terror plot foiled after husband, wife fall out

Prosecutors have told a UK court that a planned attack by a husband-and-team pair of would-be terrorists fell apart after the couple became embroiled in a domestic dispute.

Police were called when 33-year-old Mohammed Sajid Khan and his 38-year-old wife Shasta got into an argument at their Manchester-area home in northern England last July.

Officers there found beheading videos, al-Qaida propaganda, bomb-making guides, safety goggles, syringes, peroxide, bleach and electrical equipment.

An examination of the satellite navigation in Shasta Khan's car showed several trips to a particular area in Manchester.

Shasta Khan, who denied wrongdoing, was found guilty on Thursday. Mohammed Sajid Khan pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing.
