BBC report re: suspects in August bomb plot

Post by Hilary the Touched » Wed Nov 01, 2006 4:24 pm

Okay, remember that hysterical aaaah they're going to blow up airliners episode in August, the one that cancelled my flight home and led to such ridiculous and excessive luggage restrictions that waits in security lines at Dulles Airport are now 45 minutes long (and we ain't even close to holiday crush time, little chickens)?
Yeah. So here's how strong the evidence was for calling that one:


"Pair not to face 'air plot' trial

Two brothers charged in connection with an alleged airliner bomb plot have walked free from court.

The judge at the City of Westminster Magistrates' Court in London ruled there was insufficient evidence to put them on trial.

Mehran Hussain, 24, and Umair Hussain, 25, of Chingford, east London, were discharged after a committal hearing.

They were accused of failing to disclose information about a brother, Nabeel, who was a suspect in the case.

District Judge Quentin Purdy said there was not enough evidence to try the brothers.

The pair, who had been arrested at their home on 9 August, had been charged in connection with an alleged plot to bomb trans-Atlantic airliners in mid-air.

The alleged plot sparked a massive security clampdown, which led to widespread disruption at British airports in August."
