Adam Khatib guilty of plotting terror attack


A British Muslim has been convicted of conspiring to murder civilians in a "deadly terrorist attack".

Adam Khatib, 23, from east London worked alongside the gang who planned to bomb transatlantic airliners in 2006.

A jury at Woolwich Crown Court in London heard that Khatib conspired in the plot, although it was not proved that he was aware of the actual targets.

Adam Khatib was accused of plotting with the ringleader, Abdulla Ahmed Ali, who was sentenced to life imprisonment for his part in the foiled plan in September.

Andy Tighe reports.
