Jury convicts bin Laden son-in-law on terrorism charges

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 03/26/2014 - 23:26

Suleiman Abu Ghaith's defense attorney Stanley Cohen speak to press outside Manhattan Federal Court house in New YorkBy Joseph Ax NEW YORK (Reuters) - Suleiman Abu Ghaith, a son-in-law of Osama bin Laden, was found guilty of terrorism-related charges on Wednesday following a three-week trial that offered an unusually intimate portrait of al Qaeda's former leader in the days after the September 11, 2001 attacks. Abu Ghaith, 48, a Kuwait-born teacher, faces life in prison after a federal court jury in New York convicted him of conspiring to kill Americans, conspiring to provide material support for terrorists, and providing such support. Prosecutors had accused Abu Ghaith, one of the highest-profile bin Laden advisers to face trial in a U.S. civilian court since 2001, of acting as an al Qaeda mouthpiece, using videotapes of his inflammatory rhetoric to recruit new fighters. They also said Abu Ghaith knew in advance of an attempt to detonate a shoe bomb aboard an airplane by Briton Richard Reid in December 2001, citing in part an October 2001 video in which he warned Americans that the "storm of airplanes will not stop." Lawyers for Abu Ghaith said the prosecution was based on "ugly words and bad associations," rather than actual evidence that the defendant knew of or joined plots against Americans.


Landing at wrong airport can be 'catastrophic': regulator

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 03/26/2014 - 23:25
By Ros Krasny WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board issued a safety alert on Wednesday on how airplane pilots can avoid landing at the wrong airport, after recent incidents when planes landed on much shorter runways than their intended destinations. "All of us have experienced a loss of situational awareness at some time, but the consequences for pilots mistaking a nearby airport for the intended one, or landing on the wrong runway or a taxiway, can have catastrophic consequences," said NTSB chairman Deborah Hersman. In January, a Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-7H4 airplane landed at the wrong airport in Branson, Missouri, after an early evening flight from Chicago. The intended airport has a 7,140-foot runway.
