The five Londoners, Hussein Osman, Manfo Kwaku Asiedu, Muktar Said Ibrahim, Yassin Omar, and Ramzi Mohamed, are being detained in Belmarsh Prison [HM Prison profile] in London. During a Thursday hearing at the Old Bailey, the five suspects appeared - via a video link - and denied explosives and conspiracy to murder charges. Four of the five men also face attempted murder charges. Osman was seen in the video sitting in a separate section while the other four were seated together. BBC News has local coverage.
