A Bangladeshi Islamic militant working for British Airways was jailed for 30 years on Friday for plotting to blow up a plane after conspiring with radical US-Yemeni cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.

Rajib Karim, a 31-year-old computer expert, had been found guilty last month of trying to use his job at the airline to plant a bomb on a plane as part of a conspiracy with al-Awlaki.
