LONDON — Six men pleaded guilty in Britain on Tuesday to planning a terrorist attack on a demonstration by the far-right English Defence League which failed because the plotters arrived after the rally ended.

The men were arrested in July in central England after a search of an impounded vehicle found hidden guns, a nail bomb and other weapons, prompting police to trace and arrest the driver, the passenger and the other suspects.

Jewel Uddin, Omar Mohammed Khan, Mohammed Hasseen, Anzal Hussain, Mohammed Saud and Zohaib Ahmed — all from Birmingham in central England — were charged with preparing an act of terrorism.

They pleaded guilty by video link Tuesday at London’s Woolwich Crown Court, and were told by Judge Nicholas Hilliard that “there is no doubt” they will face “significant custody” when they are sentenced on June 6.
