  • Richard Reid - British man accused of trying to blow up an airliner with explosives hidden in his shoes. In an e-mail Richard Reid sent to his mother two days before he boarded the Paris to Miami flight he defended his planned actions, calling himself a warrior against "oppressive" US forces in Muslim countries. He told her not to be upset with his actions because "what I am doing is part of the ongoing war between Islam and disbelief. The e-mail says: "I see it as a duty upon me to help remove the oppressive American forces from the Muslim land and that this is the only way for us to do so as we do not have other means to fight them." Reid allegedly told investigators he had acted alone. Investigators believe Reid is part of Osama Bin Laden's al-Qaeda network and could use statements to pass hidden messages to groups planning attacks on the US. Reid denies charges of attempted murder, attempted homicide and attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction. He was arrested in 22 December after being overpowered on American Airlines flight 63 while allegedly trying to ignite explosives concealed in his shoes. The flight was diverted to Boston. Prosecutors said forensic tests on a human hair and a palm print found inside the device did not belong to Reid, indicating that at least one other person had helped him. "(The) investigation since 22 December has established that Reid was not unassisted in his efforts to destroy Flight 63, and that his choice of a target was a deliberate and calculated act of international terrorism," government lawyers wrote. Prosecutors also noted that Reid - who had no known source of income - made journeys between July and December 2001 that took him from Belgium to Israel, Egypt, Turkey and Pakistan. Charges against Reid include: Attempted use of WMD - Attempted murder - Attempted homicide - Placing an explosive device on an aircraft - Interfering with a flight crew Attempted destruction of an aircraft - Using a destructive device - Attempted wrecking of a mass transportation vehicle The trial is scheduled to go ahead in November 2004. Reid faces a maximum life sentence in prison if convicted.
