LONDON — A British man who planned to pack gas cylinders into limousines and detonate them at various targets in Britain and the U.S. recently pled guilty to conspiring to carry-out his foiled plot.

After Dhiran Barot was arrested in 2004, plans outlining details of the attacks were found on his computer. He was planning to carry out explosions that would “kill as many people as possible,” said Prosecutor Edward Lawson. Limousines, which generally carry high-profile passengers, are rarely checked by security officials. Barot’s targets included the New York Stock Exchange and locations in the U.K. His sentencing has been deferred to a later date.
