Jet 'saved by the sweaty feet of shoe bomber'

Jet 'saved by the sweaty feet of shoe bomber'

Quote:
SWEATY feet and the unwitting action of nearby passengers prevented Richard Reid, the alleged British shoe bomber, from blowing up an airliner, according to sources close to the investigation.

Mr Reid had trouble igniting his explosive-packed trainers because his feet were sweating and had dampened the non-metal fuse, said US officials.

French Newspaper Reports Shoebomber Plot E-Mail

French Newspaper Reports Shoebomber Plot E-Mail

Quote:
A French newspaper reported on Saturday that investigators had found an e-mail message in which alleged shoe bomber Richard Reid wrote of plans to destroy an airliner.

La Provence, based in the southern city of Marseille, said investigators had tracked the e-mail thanks to a cybercafe address found on Reid. The 28-year-old Briton pleaded not guilty in a U.S. court on Friday to charges that he tried to blow up the Miami-bound plane he boarded in Paris last month.
