A British court has found three men guilty of plotting to blow up at least seven transatlantic airliners using liquid explosives, in near-simultaneous attacks aimed at causing massive loss of life
Ringleader Abdulla Ahmed Ali was found guilty of conspiring to murder thousands in the plot, whose discovery triggered wide-ranging new rules on carrying liquids on commercial aircraft.
Tanvir Hussain, 28, and Assad Sarwar, 29, were found guilty on the same charges of plotting to carry out bombings on aircraft flying from London's Heathrow airport to the United States and Canada.
The three men were previously found guilty of conspiracy to murder, but the jury in their first trial could not decide on charges that they had plotted to kill people by bringing down airliners.
"This case reaffirms that we face a real and serious threat from terrorism.
The next targets after commercial flights were Nuclear Reactors, power stations and sky-scrappers.
At least one of the gang, Assad Sarwar, did not intend to die in the bloodbath when jets bound from Heathrow for the U.S. and Canada were brought down.
He was to carry out the next stage and had already compiled a list of targets including the Canary Wharf skyscrapers, the Greenwich foot tunnel underneath the Thames, nuclear power stations, oil refineries, gas terminals and other UK airports.
