Authorities are on the lookout for women, who might be carrying breast implant bombs, according to a statement released by airport officials in London, England.
Heathrow Airport is on high alert amid fears of female suicide bombers, who are ready to attack with explosives hidden inside their breast implants.
Security controls have been tightened after intelligence revealed that al-Qaeda is planning attacks on airlines flying out from London.
One official said: “There are genuine fears about this. We have been told to pay special attention to women, who may have hidden explosives inside their breasts. This is particularly difficult for us to pick up, but we are in a very high state of alert. We have long lines here in Heathrow, much longer than usual at this time of year. But because it is the summer holiday season, no one has complained.”
The head of Al-Qaeda’s bomb makers, Ibrahim al-Asiri, is understood to have developed a method to thwart airport scanners by concealing explosives in an implant or body cavity.
There are also fears that there is no shortage of volunteers willing to participate in an atrocity after hundreds of extremists recently escaped from prison in Pakistan.
Explosives expert Andy Oppenheimer said: “There is a great fear that al-Qaeda is planning on using internal devices to try to get through airport scanners. These explosives could be hidden inside breast implants.”
