Bomber's mate gets 15-year term

June 13, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

The domestic partner of a failed suicide bomber was sentenced to a 15-year jail term for not telling police about the man's plans to attack the London subway system.

Judge Paul Worsley told Yeshi Girma, 32, that it was clear that she knew Hussain Osman planned to set off explosions on the transit system on July 21, 2005. The bombs failed to fully explode and no one was injured.

A jury in London on Wednesday found Girma guilty of failing to provide information on the attack, which came two weeks after four suicide bombers killed 52 subway and bus passengers in London.

She was also found guilty of assisting an offender and failing to disclose information about his involvement. She maintained that she knew little about what he was doing. Her brother and sister each got 10 years in the case.
