Adam Khatib, a British man, was convicted in London of conspiring with the ringleader of a plot to blow up trans-Atlantic passenger jets bound for North America. The plot involved the use of liquid explosives and led to sweeping liquid restrictions for airline passengers. "Adam Khatib may not have known the full extent of the plan being hatched by his co-conspirators, but he certainly knew that they had murder in mind," said John McDowall, head of Britain's Counter Terrorist Command.
