Canadian found guilty of UK terror plot

A judge today found a Canadian suspect guilty of being involved in a plot to bomb British targets in 2004.

Justice Douglas Rutherford convicted Momim Khawaja of collaborating with a group of British Muslims in a plan to bomb British buildings and natural gas pipelines.

Five co-conspirators were convicted in London last year and jailed for life.

Khawaja, a Pakistani-born Canadian, is the first person to be charged with a terrorist offence in Canada since the country enacted anti-terrorism laws in 2001.

His case was considered to be the first major test of the laws.
