The United States government has warned domestic and international airlines around the world to be tighten further its security, amids a new terrorism threat discovered by its intelligence community.
According to the intelligence reports gathered by US agents, some terrorists are considering surgically implanting explosives into humans to carry out attacks around the world. Although no specific terrorist plot was uncovered, the US intelligence community still warned the government to tighten its nose on security to avert any terrorist attack.
To weed out a terrorist attack, airports in the US are now putting more security to ensure no harm will happen to its people from the terrorists.”These measures are designed to be unpredictable, so passengers should not expect to see the same activity at every international airport,” the US Transportation Security Administration said.
TSA spokesman Nick Kimball revealed “measures may include interaction with passengers, in addition to the use of other screening methods such as pat-downs and the use of enhanced tools and technologies.” It was learned that putting explosives and explosive components inside humans to hide bombs and evade security measures is not a new idea. However, there is a new intelligence pointing to a fresh interest in using this tactic, a U.S. security official said.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive security information. Moreover, it was learned that airport security has increased markedly since the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. The September 11 attacks (often referred to, in combination with the attacks’ side effects on that day, as September 11, September 11th or 9/11) were a series of four coordinated suicide attacks by al-Qaeda upon the United States on Tuesday, September 11, 2001.
On that morning, 19 al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four commercial passenger jet airliners.The hijackers intentionally crashed two of the airliners into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, killing everyone on board and thousands of those working in the buildings. Both towers collapsed within two hours, destroying nearby buildings and damaging others.
The hijackers crashed a third airliner into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, just outside Washington, D.C.The fourth plane crashed into a field near Shanksville in rural Pennsylvania after some of its passengers and flight crew attempted to retake control of the plane, which the hijackers had redirected toward Washington, D.C., to target either the Capitol Building or the White House. There were no survivors from any of the flights.
