If you’ve flown through London’s Heathrow Airport in the last couple months you may have noticed an increase in security and wait times. This, according to the Epoch Times, is because of an increasing concern by western security agencies of surgically implanted bombs, specifically in breast implants.
According to officials, if someone were to fill an implant with an explosive liquid and inject a catalyst liquid into it, this could potentially cause an explosion strong enough to take down a plane.
“There are genuine fears over this,” a Heathrow staff member told The Mirror. “We have been told to pay particular attention to females who may have concealed hidden explosives in their breasts. This is particularly difficult for us to pick up but we are on a very high state of alert.”
Authorities are concerned following the understanding that Al-Qaeda’s top bomb-maker, Ibrahim al-Asiri has gained the ability to embed explosive devices inside the bodies of al-Qaeda operatives. He is involved in the A-Q offshoot organization, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and is known as the mastermind behind the Underwear Bomber. According to Time, he has the cunning and resources to develop munitions that are harder, or even undetectable, by our current airport security scanners.
