Three Men Convicted Of 2006 Bomb Plot in Britain

September 7, 2009

UK (ChattahBox) – Three men have been convicted of plotting to bomb seven airliners flying between London and the US three years ago, in what was the largest ever British counter-terrorism investigation.

Abdulla Ahmed Ali, Assad Sarwar, and Tanvir Hussain have been convicted to planning to empty a number of soda bottle with a syringe, and refill them with hydrogen peroxide bombs. The bombs would have been smuggled onto seven planes carrying hundreds of passengers each.

There were originally eight charged with the plot. Four of the men were found not guilty, while one, Umar Islam, was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder.

The plot was originally intended as retribution for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, which many extremists hold the US and Britain directly responsible for.

This particular case was what has led to the banning of all but small amounts of liquids on plains.
