Terror teens trial verdict in

TWO Ravensthorpe teenagers accused plotting to blow up the BNP have been found not guilty.
Waris Ali, 18, of Dearnley Street, and Dabeer Hussain, 18, of Clarkson Street, had both denied possessing articles for a terrorist purpose.

During a thirteen day trial jurors at Leeds Crown Court heard the pair had copies of terror manual The Anarchist's Cookbook on their home computers.

A police raid on Ali's home in 2006 uncovered quantities of potassium nitrate and calcium carbonate, which the prosecution said could be used to make a bomb.

But Ali said he downloaded the manual so he could make fireworks and smokebombs with the chemicals.
