A Muslim man has been found guilty of conspiracy to murder by plotting with Abdulla Ahmed Ali, the ringleader of the foiled plan to blow up passenger jets.


Adam Khatib, 22, of Walthamstow, east London, was convicted by a majority of 11 jurors to one following an eight-week trial at Woolwich Crown Court.

Ali was jailed for a minimum of 40 years in September after a jury found him guilty of conspiracy to murder by planning suicide attacks on transatlantic aircraft.

Three other men, Assad Sarwar, Tanvir Hussain and Umar Islam, were also convicted in September of playing key roles in the plot.

Co-defendant Mohammed Shamin Uddin, 39, of Stoke Newington, north London, was found not guilty of preparing for terrorism and of researching or permitting to research being carried out into the use and purchase of hydrogen peroxide.

He was also found not guilty of possessing materials which could be used for a purpose connected with the commission, preparation or instigation of an act of terrorism.

However, the jury unanimously convicted him on the alternative count of possessing materials likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.

Co-defendant Nabeel Hussain, 25, of Chingford, east London was found guilty by majority of preparing for terrorism and of possessing several items for use in terrorism.
