The BBC and the 'missing' tape The founder of the group, Richard Gage, says the collapse of the third tower is an obvious example of a controlled demolition using explosives. A sixth grader can look at this building falling at virtually freefall speed, symmetrically and smoothly, and see that it is not a natural process. Although its collapse potentially made architectural history, all of the thousands of tonnes of steel from the skyscraper were taken away to be melted down. The third tower was occupied by the Secret Service, the CIA, the Department of Defense and the Office of Emergency Management, which would co-ordinate any response to a disaster or a terrorist attack.
The special anti-terrorism tribunal sentenced one man to death, the second one to 30 years in prison, and the third one to six years in prison.
The case is going to the appeals court. The identity of Mr Shah's murderers have not been made public and their motive is not clear. The attorney general's office said the three were detained in Parwan prison also known as Bagram jailwhich mostly houses prisoners accused of terrorism, and the trial was held there.
Ahmad Shah joined the BBC from local radio in early with a brief to cover his home province of Khost, in south-eastern Afghanistan, but he branched out to cover the neighbouring provinces of Paktia and Paktika as well for television, radio and online.
He was killed as he cycled home to the village where he lived outside Khost city, and died of his injuries in hospital. Local security officials say the attack was carried out by two gunmen riding a motorbike.
Mr Shah had not received any work-related threat or threatening calls, and his family was involved in no feuds, according to his father. The Taliban denied any involvement in his killing, saying "he was a professional journalist and we are saddened" by his death.

But the country remains one of the most dangerous places for journalists in the world. The day Ahmad Shah was shot dead, 30 April, was the deadliest for the media in the country's history. Nine members of the press had been killed earlier in the day as they gathered to cover a suicide attack in Kabul.International Builder Carillion in Debt Crisis.
