Rajib Karim

Rajib Karim was convicted this week at Woolwich Crown Court of conspiring to blow up a British Airways plane, and on further three counts of preparing for terrorist attacks, including conspiring with on-the-run radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.

Karim worked as an graduate IT trainee with BA Police whilst passing encrypted messages to Awlaki. In February last year Awlaki wrote to Karim: "Our highest priority is the US. Anything there, even on a smaller scale compared to what we may do in the UK would be our choice. So the question is with the people you have is it possible to get a package or a person with a package on board a flight heading to the US?"

A few days later Karim replied: "I do not know much about US I can work with the bros to find out the possibilities of shipping a package to a US-bound plane."

Jonathan Laidlaw QC, prosecuting, said of Karim: "He is ... an Islamic extremist, with close association to, if not membership of Jamaat ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh, an organisation committed to the establishment of Islamic rule in Bangladesh, responsible for terrorist attacks in Bangladesh, and with links to al-Qaida. The defendant ... believes terrorism, including murder of civilians, is permissible to establish, as he views it, a true Islamic state. [He] was anxious himself to carry out such an attack and determined to seek martyrdom."

Clearly a callous extremist seeking to murder innocent people. A prime candidate for the pit.
