3 guilty in London plot that caused airline chaos

LONDON (AP) -- A British jury has found three men guilty of conspiracy to murder in a terrorist bombing campaign that could have killed hundreds with liquid explosives.

The arrest of the men in 2006 caused travel chaos after officials said they uncovered a plot to bring down trans-Atlantic airliners, but jurors could not reach a verdict on charges they targeted planes.

A jury on Monday found that Abdulla Ahmed Ali and two co-conspirators intended to murder people using a form of hydrogen peroxide liquid bomb disguised as a soft drink.

The jury failed to reach verdicts on charges against four other defendants and cleared one man.

Restrictions imposed immediately on the amount of liquid passengers can carry in hand luggage remain in place.
