UK man convicted suicide bomb plot

UK man convicted suicide bomb plot

A court says a British Muslim convert has been found guilty of plotting to carry out a terrorist attack with a homemade suicide bomb vest.
Isa Ibrahim was convicted by a jury on Friday on charges of making an explosive with intent to endanger life and making explosives with intent to cause serious injury or damage to property.
Prosecutors said that 20-year-old Ibrahim intended to carry out the plot in April 2008 and was likely targeting a shopping mall in Bristol in southwestern England.
Police said following his arrest in 2008 that Ibrahim had the homemade explosive HMTD, detonators and a homemade suicide vest at his home.
Prosecutors told the jury Ibrahim had said the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States were justified.
