On April 5, 2007, three men arrested in connection with the 2005 London bombings were charged with unlawfully and maliciously conspiring with suicide bombers in a series of attacks on London's public transit system. Al Qaeda claimed responsibility for the explosions, which left 52 people dead in the British capital. The men, Mohammed Shakil, Waheed Ali and Adeer Saleem, pleaded not guilty to the charges and were acquitted following a mistrial.
