Al Qaeda Could be Plotting Attacks with Bombs Inside Women’s Breasts
According to media reports, Britain’s busiest Heathrow Airport is on high alert after “credible” intelligence emerged that Al Qaeda is plotting attacks, including strike by women suicide bombers with explosives concealed in breast implants.
Security checks have been beefed up after intelligence reports surfaced that Al Qaeda is plotting attacks on airlines flying out of London, The Mirror reported.
“There are genuine fears over this. We have been told to pay particular attention to females who may have concealed hidden explosives in their breasts. This is particularly difficult for us to pick up but we are on a very high state of alert,” an airport staff member was quoted by the daily as saying.
“It’s led to long queues here at Heathrow, much longer than usual at this time of the year. But because it’s the summer holiday season, no one has complained,” the staff member said.
Al Qaeda’s chief bomb-maker Ibrahim al-Asiri is understood to have developed the method of foiling airport scanners by concealing explosives in an implant or bodily cavity, the report said.
It is also feared there is no shortage of volunteers willing to take part in an atrocity after hundreds of extremists recently escaped from prison in Pakistan, it said.
