Three men accused of plotting suicide attacks on transatlantic flights pleaded guilty yesterday to conspiring to cause explosions.
The pleas of Abdulla Ahmed Ali, 27, Assad Sarwar, 28, and Tanvir Hussain, 27, came as their trial at Woolwich Crown Court in south-east London was drawing to a close.
The trio and two other defendants, Ibrahim Savant, 27, and Umar Islam, 30, also pleaded guilty to conspiring to cause public nuisance by publishing videos threatening suicide bomb attacks.
A jury must still decide if the five men and three other defendants are guilty of conspiring to mass murder by smuggling home-made liquid bombs onto passenger jets.
All eight men deny two charges of conspiracy to murder between January 1 and August 11, 2006.
Prosecutors claim they plotted to blow up passenger jets flying from London to major cities in North America in a coordinated attack.
