Ex-security minister on jet plot

British intelligence has been vindicated by convictions in the airline bomb plot, former security minister Tony McNulty has said.

On Monday, Abdulla Ahmed Ali, 28, Tanvir Hussain, 28, and Assad Sarwar, 29, were convicted of conspiring to activate bombs disguised as drinks.

The convictions followed two trials and an operation which cost more than £35m.
