Chowdhury convicted of plotting London tourist terror attacks

28-year-old Mohiussunnath Chowdhury has been convicted of planning a terror attack at busy London tourist hotspots just over a year after he was cleared of a sword attack on police outside Buckingham Palace.

Chowdhury, from Luton, was convicted at Woolwich Crown Court of engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorist acts, collecting information likely to be useful to someone preparing an act of terrorism and disseminating terrorist publications.

The former Uber driver had planned to target iconic tourist sites including Madame Tussauds, Piccadilly Circus and London's Gay Pride parade, using a vehicle, knife and gun.

His sister Sneha Chowdhury, 25, was also convicted of one count of failing to disclose information about acts of terrorism and cleared of another count of the same charge.
