    A 'terrorist sympathiser' linked to a notorious airline bomb plot is claiming he was unfairly sacked as a British Airways baggage handler because of his religion.
    Counter terrorist police found an apparent plan to groom Shahzada Khan to place a package on a plane bound for America.

    During an investigation into Rajib Karim, who was jailed for 30 years last March for plotting to place a bomb on an airplane heading to America, police discovered emails between Karim and Khan, as well as emails between Karim and hate-preacher Anwar al-Awlak.

    And here I thought the sacking might have more to do with looking to put a "package" on an airplane to the US...

    :rolleyes:

    That does seem to cause concern. Who knew?

    I see the Daily Mail has chosen to illustrate the story with a picture of baggage at Heathrow on a normal day.

    What, you mean the place doesn't always look like that?
