Al-Qaeda is laying deadly “booby traps” by equipping its female suicide bombers with explosive breast implants that are impossible to be detected at airport security checkpoints, British intelligence agency MI5 has claimed.
Women suicide bombers recruited by Al-Qaeda are known to have have the explosives inserted in their breast under techniques similar to breast enhancing surgery. The lethal explosives, called PETN, are inserted inside plastic shaped during the surgery, before the breast is sewn up. The intelligence agency has also discovered that Al-Qaeda is now inserting explosives into the buttocks of some male suicide bombers. The implant is virtually impossible to detect by the usual airport scanning machines. An X-ray would be needed to detect an explosive.
Given that the explosive would be inserted in a sealed plastic sachet, and would be a small amount, would make it all the more impossible to spot it with the usual body scanner. A sachet containing as little as 5 ounces of PETM could blow “a considerable hole” in an airline’s skin, causing it to crash.
