Two former British soldiers who firebombed a mosque in a bid to avenge the grisly murder of a soldier by Islamic extremists were jailed for six years each on Friday.
Stuart Harness, 34, and Gavin Humphries, 37, made petrol bombs and hurled them at the Islamic Cultural Centre in the eastern English fishing town of Grimsby on May 26. Terrified worshippers were trapped inside.
A third defendant, Daniel Cressey, was also jailed for six years for helping Harness and Humphries by driving them to the mosque.
