    Four men who murdered a couple in a bungled honour killing attempt have been jailed for life.

    The gang's intended victim was a Muslim man who was having an affair with a married woman but they firebombed the wrong house.

    Abdullah Mohammed, 41, and his wife, Aysha, 39, were overcome by smoke and fumes at their home in Blackburn, Lancashire, and later died in hospital.

    Ringleader Hisamuddin Ibrahim, 21, who ordered the arson attack, has been jailed for a minimum of 28 years at Preston Crown Court.

    Habib Iqbal, 25, Sadek Miah, 23, and Mohammed Miah, 19, were handed minimum terms of 25, 21 and 19 years.

    All four were convicted of the double murders on Monday.
