A High Court in Pakistan delayed a lower court's ruling that dropped terrorism charges against a British man suspected in a plot to bomb trans-Atlantic passenger jets out of Britain, a lawyer said. The British Muslim, Rashid Rauf, of Pakistani origin, was arrested in August and Pakistani officials identified him as a "key person" in the airline terror plot. The uncovering of the alleged plot by British police, triggered a pre-emptive security alert that saw mass cancellations of flights to and from London's Heathrow Airport for several days in August.
