A court in Scotland has overturned the conviction of a man accused of terrorism offences.

Senior judges at Scotland’s Criminal Court of Appeal say he was the victim of a miscarriage of justice because of the instructions the trial judge gave the jury.

Prosecutors said on Tuesday they will not seek farther court action against 24-year-old Mohammed Atif Siddique.

The Scottish man was sentenced to eight years in prison in 2007. Prosecutors said at the time that he planned to become a suicide bomber.

Prosecutors say he had stored and posted guides to bomb-making, guns and explosives on a network of Web sites.

He was arrested in 2006 while trying to board a flight to Pakistan.
