LONDON (AP) — A British newspaper says that a website has spent months publishing letters written by Muslim extremists jailed for serious terror offenses.

The Sunday Times says that the now-defunct site muslimprisoners.com carried dozens of letters written by Islamist radicals involved in what the newspaper described as "virtually every plot against Britain in recent years."

The Times said the site was pulled down on Friday. But cached versions of several letters were still available online, as was contact information for a man identified on the site as Abu Muhsina.

Abu Muhsina refused to answer questions about the site when called by The Associated Press, referring all questions to his lawyer.

His lawyer didn't immediately return a message seeking comment.
