LONDON – A former British Airways employee has admitted some terror charges ahead of his London trial.
Bangladesh-born Rajib Karim is accused of deliberately seeking a job with the flagship airline in order to further an as-yet unspecified terrorist conspiracy.
The 31-year-old pleaded guilty Monday to being involved in the production and distribution of a video on behalf of the outlawed terror group Jammat-ul Mujahideen Bangladesh.
He also pleaded guilty to funding associates in Yemen, offering himself for terrorist training abroad and encouraging others to do the same.
He denies a series of other terror-related charges. Few details of the case have been made publicly available.
Britain's Crown Prosecution Service did not return a call seeking comment on the case.
