Doctors are training Al-Qaeda in Yemen to plant explosives inside the bodies of suicide bombers, it is believed.
Security at airports in the U.S., Europe and the Middle East has been stepped up amid fears terrorists with surgically implanted bombs are planning to strike on the eve of Osama bin Laden’s death.
Body scanners would not be able to detect if explosive compounds were planted inside a person sparking fears the bombers could evade airport security and bring down an aircraft.
Western intelligence believe a group of doctors are working with Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri – chief bomb maker for Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) – who has been in hiding.
