Airline terrorism plot foiled

Posted By on Thu, Aug 10, 2006 at 7:28 AM

A terrorist plot discovered in Britain is affecting air travel in the U.S. and around the world.

"A major terrorist plot to allegedly blow up aircraft in mid-flight has been disrupted," a London police spokesman said, adding they believed the intention was to target flights from Britain to the United States.

U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff announced that airline passengers are no longer allowed to bring any liquids, including beverages, hair gels, and lotions onto flights. He also raised the terror alert to its highest level for commercial flights originating in the U.K. bound for the U.S.
