Khaled Khayat, 51, was found guilty of plotting to blow up an Etihad Airways flight from Sydney to Abu Dhabi in July 2017, and to carry out a gas attack on behalf of Islamic State. Khaled Khayat and his brother Mahmoud Khayat, 32, were accused of planting a bomb in a meat grinder and giving it to his third brother, who was unaware of the bomb, to take onboard the flight. Airport security did not let the meat grinder pass as it was too heavy, averting a potential disaster. Reports state that military-grade explosive materials were sent from Turkey to the brothers via air cargo. Khaled will be sentenced on 26 July, and his brother Mahmoud’s verdict is being considered.
