BA call centre worker Rajib Karim admits terror charges

A former British Airways call centre worker has pleaded guilty to offering to take part in terrorist training or insurgent operations overseas.

Rajib Karim also pleaded guilty at Woolwich Crown Court to transferring funds for terrorist purposes.

However, the 31-year-old, of Newcastle, denied getting a job at BA in order to pass on information on how to attack the airline's computer systems.

His trial begins at Woolwich Crown Court on Tuesday.

Mr Karim also pleaded not guilty to making contact with the radical Yemeni preacher Anwar Al-Awlaki.

He was arrested in February 2010 while working for the airline's call centre in Newcastle.
