Ottawa programmer designed detonators, British court told
An Ottawa-based terrorism suspect planned to build dozens of detonators for a British terror cell in a project he allegedly referred to as his "baby," a London court has heard.
"I am putting together up to 30 devices for you. We will test out stuff too," Mohammed Momin Khawaja allegedly wrote to co-conspirators, according to an intercepted e-mail presented to a British jury yesterday.
The 27-year-old is alleged to be the Canadian end of a 2004 al-Qaeda-style conspiracy against civilian targets in London, intended payback for Britain's role in the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.
