FILE - This undated file photo provided by the Metropolitan Police in London shows Saajid Badat, sentenced in 2005 after admitting he conspired to blow up a U.S.-bound plane in 2001 with explosives hidden in a shoe. On Monday, March 17, 2014, a federal judge in New Haven, Conn., granted the request by prosecutors to have a witness testify by video from Britain in the July sentencing of two British citizens, Babar Ahmad and Syed Talha Ahsan, who pleaded guilty in Connecticut to supporting terrorists through websites. The witness, not named in court papers but fits the description of Badat, is expected to testify that Ahmad sent him to Afghanistan to train for violent jihad and that he moved on from Ahmad and was trained by al-Qaida members for the failed shoe bomb plot to bring down an airplane.
