Three UK Men Found Guilty of Liquid Bombs Terror Plot
Three men have been found guilty of plotting to blow up planes above the Atlantic with home-made liquid bombs.
A UK jury convicted ringleader Abdulla Ahmed Ali, 28, of conspiring to activate bombs disguised as drinks.
Tanvir Hussain, 28, and Assad Sarwar, 29, were also found guilty of the same charge at Woolwich Crown Court in London, the BBC reported.
The verdicts follow one of the UK's longest terror inquiries. The men's arrests in 2006 led to airport restrictions on liquids.
Ali, Hussain and Sarwar were previously found guilty of conspiracy to murder involving liquid bombs - but that jury could not decide whether their plans extended to detonating the devices on planes.
Now a second jury has decided that such a terror plot did exist.
With thousands killed in the air and on the ground, the explosions could have caused more devastation than the September 11 attacks.
