Important Al Quada-New Serious Threat to US Flights



Al Quada-New Serious WorldwideThreat to US Flights- Airport Security Increases


BBC. 3 July 2014





UK warned today that security is being tightened at airports with direct flights into the US - including some in the UK - in response to warnings of a "credible threat".


Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said the measures were being taken to keep the public safe.
While he would not specify what steps would be involved, he ruled out "significant disruption" to passengers.

It comes amid US media reports that al-Qaeda affiliates in Syria and Yemen are developing bombs to smuggle on planes.



“Start Quote
We are sharing recent and relevant information with our foreign allies and are consulting the aviation industry."”

Jeh Johnson Secretary of US Department of Homeland Security

A US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official said the changes were a response to a "real time" and "credible" threat, but he could not comment on specific intelligence matters.


'Stringent Measures'

He said aviation remained an "attractive target" to global terrorists, but he could not reveal "sensitive" specifics.
DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson also said in a statement: "We are sharing recent and relevant information with our foreign allies and are consulting the aviation industry."

Mr McLoughlin told the BBC that "very stringent" measures were already in place, but that the UK had to take action when given information and advice to do so.

The changes are expected in the "upcoming days".
Some 80 commercial airline passenger flights are departing the UK bound for US destinations on Thursday, according to the National Airport Traffic Services (Nats), which only covers 15 main UK airports and does not take into account cargo, business or private flights.


What changes will we see?
by Richard Westcott, BBC transport correspondent


The unspecified measures will be put into place in some airports with direct US flights

The UK government isn't giving any details about what these security changes actually are, but they haven't ruled out longer queues at security.
The statement from the department for transport merely says that the majority of passengers should not experience significant disruption.

What we do know is that all of the old rules remain in place. So you will still have to put liquids into separate, see-through bags, take your laptop out of your bag, take off your belt and maybe your shoes before going through security.
It's also not clear whether these changes will affect every airport, and whether they are limited to flights to and from the United States, which has prompted this move.

The actual terrorism threat level remains the same, at substantial. That's the middle of the five threat levels and means that an attack is a strong possibility.

Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin says the UK has "acted on advice and information received"

Al-Nusra Front, al-Qaeda's affiliate in Syria, and Yemen-based al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) are believed to be working together to try to develop explosives that could avoid detection by current airport scanners.

The Arab Spring upheavals of 2011 have left much territory in Yemen ungoverned, giving the AQAP the opportunity to move in and carry out attacks on government positions there.

Yemen also has become one of a handful of countries where the US acknowledges using drones which have killed large numbers of jihadist plotters.


What is the security risk?
by Frank Gardner, BBC security correspondent




Longer queues are a possibility



This new increased threat warning has been triggered by a fear amongst western intelligence agencies that some of al-Qaida's sophisticated bomb-making expertise has proliferated out of Yemen to Syria.

For the last five years jihadists in Yemen have been working on so-called "artfully-concealed devices" - hard-to-detect explosives that contain no metal and emit only a faint vapour.
Three times now they have been able to smuggle these onto international flights. Only one exploded, killing the man carrying it but nobody else, after the plane landed.

There is equipment in place to detect such devices at most major UK airports but it is not used on every passenger.

What is alarming the US Department for Homeland Security is the possibility that jihadists with European passports are now in Syria, learning how to construct such devices before returning home.

'Serial failures'

Ben Friedman, an expert in defence and homeland security at the Cato Institute in the US, told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that it was important to remember that attempts by the Yemeni bomb-makers in the past to blow up planes had failed.
He referred to the Christmas Day underwear bomber, who failed to take down a US-bound flight in 2009, and a failed attempt in which a bomb was hidden in a printer cartridge in a cargo plane in 2010, which was also bound for the US.

"These guys are serial failures," he said.

Meanwhile, a picture of home-made bombs was posted on Twitter on Wednesday by a person claiming to be Nasser Muthana, from Cardiff, who appeared in an Isis propaganda video released last week.
He tweeted next to the image: "So the UK is afraid I come back with the skills I've gained."


Thwarted AQAP plots
  • August 2009: AQAP bomb-maker Ibrahim al-Asiri sends his brother from Yemen to Saudi Arabia to assassinate a senior Saudi prince. The device explodes next to the prince but kills only the bomber
  • December 2009: AQAP sends Nigerian Omar Abdulmutallab on a flight to Detroit with a bomb hidden in his underpants. He lights the fuse, but is overpowered before it goes off
  • October 2010: AQAP sends two bombs hidden inside printer ink toner cartridges on cargo flights destined for Chicago. One is intercepted in Dubai, the other at East Midlands Airport after a tip-off
  • May 2012: AQAP gives a newly upgraded airline bomb to a supposed suicide bomber, but he is a Saudi double agent and he passes it to Saudi intelligence


Authorities say they will work to limit disruption for passengers


'Keep us safe'


Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said he could not discuss the intelligence and analysis that led to increased security.

However, he added that the "groups... who want to do us harm are constantly looking at new ways that they can seek to harm us and that is why we have to constantly review whether we need to implement new ways to keep us safe".

The BBC understands the security changes are not expected to cause big delays at Heathrow - one of the busiest hubs for flights to the US.
Security experts told the BBC the best defence against the type of bombs al-Qaeda is thought to be developing was a combination of two things: both a body scanner and an ion body scanner.
The former reveals concealed devices - even those hidden inside a bomber's body - and the latter detects the tiniest particles of explosive residue.

Both devices are deployed at most major UK airports, but are used on only a minority of passengers, alongside more common measures including x-ray scans, pat-downs and swabs.

Airports across the world ramped up security measures in the aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks in the US. ****pit security was also enhanced.
They introduced security checks on footwear after a shoe bomb nearly brought down a plane a few months later.
Restrictions on liquids in hand luggage were introduced in 2006 after a British plot to blow up seven US and Canada-bound flights with liquid bombs was foiled by the security services.

Three men behind the terror plot were jailed for life.

**UPDATES will be reported on this thread as more Reports/Warnings come in from other countries

Default Re: Al Quada-New Serious Threat to US Flights

Travellers to US face tighter airport security


July 03, 2014 - 1:06:55 pm


LONDON: Travellers flying to the United States from Europe and the Middle East face tighter airport security checks from Thursday due to fears extremist Muslim groups are making new explosives able to slip by standard checks.

The measures threaten fresh disruptions for passengers at the start of the summer holiday season and will affect some direct flights to the US.
Officials declined to say if they had uncovered a specific plot.

But the move comes amid increased concern among Western intelligence services that Islamist fighters who go to Syria with European passports could pose a security risk on their return.

UGANDA Airport Threat

US warns of 'specific threat' to attack airport in Kampala, Uganda, steps up security


The Age, Australia, 3 June 2014

The US embassy in Uganda warned on Thursday of a "specific threat... by an unknown terrorist group" to attack the airport serving the capital Kampala.
The alert, published on the embassy's website in the east African nation, followed a warning by US authorities on Wednesday that security at Middle East and European airports with direct US flights needed to be stepped up.

"The US embassy has received information from the Uganda police force that according to intelligence sources there is a specific threat to attack Entebbe International Airport by an unknown terrorist group today, July 3rd, between the hours of 2100-2300 (0400-0600 Friday Sydney time)," the statement said.

On Wednesday the US said it would increase security at overseas airports with non-stop flights to the country, citing concerns al-Qaeda operatives in Syria and Yemen were developing bombs that could be smuggled onto planes.

The new security measures would be required at airports in Europe, Africa and the Middle East that have direct flights, US officials said on condition of anonymity.

The US Department of Homeland Security said "enhanced security measures" would be implemented in the next few days at "certain overseas airports with direct flights into the United States". It did not specify which airports or what countries would be affected, nor did it say what triggered the extra precautions.

"We are sharing recent and relevant information with our foreign allies and are consulting the aviation industry," department secretary Jeh Johnson said.
Mr Johnson said he directed the Transportation Security Administration to implement the measures in the coming days. The move comes during the US summer travel season and days before the July 4 holiday.

A US official said some of the new measures would involve additional inspections of passengers' shoes and property. The official said Washington had legal authority to enforce new security requirements on foreign governments or airports because the flights go directly to the US.
Earlier, law enforcement and security officials said the US and European authorities were discussing measures that could include installation of additional bomb-detection machines.

Bomb makers from Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaeda's affiliate in Syria, and Yemen's al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, are believed to be working together to try to develop explosives that could avoid detection by current airport screening systems, US national security sources said.
The main concern is that militant groups could try to blow up US or Europe-bound planes by concealing bombs on foreign fighters carrying Western passports who spent time with Islamist rebel factions in the region, the sources said.

Officials are especially worried that the recent battlefield successes of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant in Iraq and Syria have drawn a growing number of militants from the US and Europe to the jihadist cause and they would have easy access to flights headed for American cities.
