Osama Bin Laden documents to be used against British-based student

Monday 05th January 2015 07:44 EST

Documents found in the raid on Osama Bin Laden's compound in Pakistan will be used in court against a British-based student. The Navy Seals, who moved in on the terrorist ring-leader's property, have reason to believe that Abid Naseer, 28, originally from Pakistan, plotted to plant bombs in international locations including Manchester, New York and Norway.

The documents indicated that Naseer worked alongside Al-Qaeda operatives. The trial began in Brooklyn, New York, where it is the first time evidence from the notorious Bin Laden storming will be used in prosecutions. Although no explosives were uncovered, a series of emails was exchanged between Naseer and three already convicted men in New York who were planning to bomb the Subway. Naseer, who is representing himself in court, has denied all charges.
