BBC on Bojinka

According to the BBC this morning:

Eleven people have been charged in connection with an alleged plot to blow up several transatlantic airliners.

Eight have been charged with conspiracy to murder and preparing acts of terrorism.

Two are accused of failing to disclose information and a 17-year-old faces a charge of possessing articles useful to a person preparing acts of terrorism.

One woman has been freed without charge and eleven people remain in custody, the Crown Prosecution Service said.

I'm very, very skeptical. "Articles useful to a person preparing acts of terrorism?" Does that include hair gel?

Note that one woman has already been freed without charge. Let's see what happens with the other 11 in custody.
