U.S., World: The three wannabe airline bombers got life sentences

  • “The most grave and wicked conspiracy ever proven within this jurisdiction.” Abdulla Ahmed Ali, Assad Sarwar and Tanvir Hussain, the three men responsible for forcing you to carry your liquids in plastic bags, have each been sentenced to life in prison for their attempted 2006 trans-Atlantic airline attack. The three were convicted of a murder plot in the U.K., though they claim it was for a political statement. Each must serve at least 32 years before being eligible for parole, with Ahmed Ali having to serve at least 40. source
