British jury find three Islamists guilty of plotting to explode planes

The jury at the Woolwich Crown Court in London found the three men, Abdulla Ahmed Ali, Assad Sarwar and Tanvir Hussain, guilty of planning to kill passengers in mid-flight using liquid explosives disguised as soft drinks. The three will be sentenced next week.

The prosecution said the attacks would have “exceeded the carnage” of the September 11 attacks in the US in 2001 and would have “inflicted heavy casualties in the name of Islam.”

British police said on Monday that they believed the group was within days of carrying out the attacks when they were arrested.

“We believe that they were contemplating some sort of dummy run,” a British police representative said.

The police source said the men were planning to bomb at least seven airliners one week after this practice run.

The other 5 are still waiting for the verdict.
