The "Shoe Bomber"

An instructive example of a single-member Islamist cell is the case of Richard C. Reid, a British resident who converted to Islam in prison in the UK and who became known as the "shoe bomber." Reid was detected by an alert flight attendant and overpowered by passengers on December 22, 2001, when he attempted to ignite plastic explosives in his shoe on American Airlines Flight 63, a Boeing 767 carrying 198 passengers and crew from Paris to Miami.13 In Reid's case, he was a self-professed follower of al-Qaeda and may have been trained by the organization in Afghanistan. He was sentenced to life imprisonment in a super-maximum-security prison after pleading guilty before a federal court in Boston.
