A judge sentenced on Thursday a London man to a minimum of 18 years in prison for his role in a plot to blow up trans-Atlantic passenger jets using liquid explosives. Adam Khatib, 23, was sentenced for plotting with Abdulla Ahmed Ali, who was convicted of leading a team that planned to simultaneously down at least seven trans-Atlantic flights. Ali was sentenced in September to 40 years. Two men convicted of lesser offenses were also ordered jailed on Thursday. Nabeel Hussain, 25, received eight years while Mohammed Shamin Uddin, 39, was jailed for seven years. The plot was uncovered in August 2006 and intended to rival the Sept. 11 attacks. It caused massive disruptions and resulted in restrictions on the amount of liquids and gels that can be carried on airplanes.
