Britain Convicts Three of 2006 Airline Bombing Plot

A London Court on Monday convicted three British-Muslims of plotting to murder thousands by downing at least seven trans-Atlantic flights in concerted attacks, planned by al-Qaeda.

The trio, Abdulla Ahmed Ali, 28, Assad Sarwar, 29, and Tanvir Hussain, 28 were found guilty of playing a pivotal role in a plan to detonate bombs on aircraft bound for the United States and Canada.

The convicts planned to use liquid explosives hidden in soda bottles to blow up the aircraft.

Authorities estimate that the plan, reportedly, guided by terror perpetrators in Pakistan, would have resulted in nearly 2000 deaths.

Police officials said they believe the plotters were just days away from mounting the attacks when some 25 people were rounded up in 2006.
