Britons cleared over 7/7 attacks

Three men found not guilty of helping to plot suicide bombings in London in July 2005.

    Mohammed Shakil, Sadeer Saleem and Waheed Ali were accused of searching for possible targets

    Although they were not directly involved in making the bombs or carrying out the attacks, detectives believed the men had helped plan the attacks.

    A jury last year failed to reach a verdict against the men, and on Tuesday at a retrial at London's Kingston Crown Court, Ali, 25, Shakil, 32, and Saleem, 28, were found not guilty of conspiring with the July 7 bombers to cause explosions.

    Ali and Shakil were convicted of a second charge of conspiracy to attend a terrorism training camp in Pakistan at the time of their March 2007 arrest.

    They will be sentenced on Wednesday.
