Australian court upholds terror manual charge against former airline worker

A former Qantas worker found guilty of producing a do-it-yourself jihad manual had his conviction reinstated by Australia’s High Court Friday, with judges ruling he had extremist intentions.

Lebanese-born Belal Sadallah Khazaal, an ex-Qantas cabin cleaner, was jailed for 12 years in 2009 over the Arabic-language handbook, which included how-to guides on bomb-making, assassinations, kidnappings and shooting down planes.
