Airliner bomb planner get life sentences

Three men convicted of plotting to bomb planes flying from London to North America with liquid explosive hidden in soft drink bottles were ordered jailed for life, a judge announced Monday.

The men were under arrest in August 2006 on suspicion of intrigues to blow up planes with liquid explosive hidden in soft-drink bottles. The plot led to immediate restrictions on liquids that passengers are allowed to carry onboard aircraft, resulting in today's rules that allow only small amounts to be carried in resealable clear plastic bags.

The judge, Justice Richard Henriques, called the plot "the most grave and wicked plan ever proven within this jurisdiction."
