31st January 2011, Comments 0 comments

A former British Airways computer expert on Monday admitted three terrorism charges, including funding associates in Yemen and volunteering for terrorism training and insurgent operations abroad.

Rajib Karim, 31, also pleaded guilty to being involved in the production and distribution of a video on behalf of a militant group during the hearing at Woolwich Crown Court in London.

Karim, who was arrested last February in Newcastle, northeast England, where he was working in one of the airline's call centres, denied several other similar charges.

He will return to court on Tuesday to stand trial on the remaining counts. The trial is scheduled to last around five weeks.
