Court told of "suicide bombers ready to take on England"

A court has heard how one of the three men from Birmingham accused of planning terror attacks bigger than the July 7 bombings said they were "suicide bombers ready to take on England."

Irfan Naseer, Irfan Khalid and Ashik Ali were covertly recorded by police last year pretending to be Formula One commentators covering a race.

It was in the middle of their conversation that Mr. Khalid allegedly made the statement. The three men deny all the charges against them. The trial continues.
