LONDON (Web Desk) – A British court has convicted a husband and wife of planning a terror attack in London ahead of the 10th anniversary of the 7 July 2005 suicide attacks.

Mohammed Rehman, 25, discussed targeting the London Underground and Westfield shopping centre on social media under the name “Silent Bomber”.

Chemicals for bomb making were found at his Reading home, the Old Bailey heard.

He and his wife Sana Ahmed Khan were convicted of preparing terrorist acts. They will be sentenced on Wednesday.

BBC reported that Rehman, who was also convicted of possessing an article for terrorist purposes, used Twitter in May to ask for suggestions on which target in London to choose.

With money supplied by his 24-year-old wife, he stockpiled the chemicals needed to make a huge bomb at his family home in Reading and even filmed himself setting off a small explosion in his back garden.
