Airliners bomb plot: The Verdicts

Abdulla Ahmed Ali, Tanvir Hussain, and Assad Sarwar have been found guilty of plotting to suicide-bomb transatlantic planes with home-made liquid bombs. The three were found guilty at an earlier trial of conspiracy to murder - but that jury could not decide whether the three men's plans extended to planes. The table below gives details of the verdicts at both trials.
