‘I wore shoe bomb on plane to UK, “Briton” tells U.S. terror trial’: Man convicted of plotting to blow up flights gives evidence against bin Laden’s son-in-law

Saajid Badat, who spent six years in jail for terror offences, gave evidence via video-link

A Briton has told the trial of Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law that he wore a shoe bomb on a flight to the UK.

Saajid Badat, who gave evidence in the New York trial via video link from Britain, said yesterday he wore the bomb on at least one flight between Holland and the UK in December 2001.

But he said he didn’t detonate it because he was saving it for an attack over America.
