... in the UK.

British Airways worker Rajib Karim convicted of terrorist plot

A disciple of the Yemen-based radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki has been found guilty of plotting to blow up a plane while working as a computer specialist with British Airways.

Rajib Karim, 31, used his position as an IT expert with the airline to try to help stage attacks on the west.

...

Police believe Karim was offering to supply information to terrorists that could be used to stage an attack. He also tried to join BA cabin crew during a strike but failed because of a technicality.

Karim shared details of his BA contacts in encrypted emails, claiming to know of a sympathetic security guard and baggage handler.



It took 9 months to decode the encrypted message on his computer.
