Kebab shop explosion pair jailed for manslaughter

A man and a woman have been found guilty of manslaughter after a 40-year-old Leicester man died following an explosion at a kebab shop.

Fiaz Ahmed Ansari's body was found in rubble of Kams King of the Grill 15 hours after the blast in August 2011.

Shahbaz Khan and Mehwish Yasin, both 25, told police they had planned to light a small fire in order to make an insurance claim.

The pair were sentenced to eight years each in jail at Leicester Crown Court.
