INTELLIGENCE SOURCES: “MAJOR TERRORIST OPERATION, SOME ‘PLANNERS’ MIGHT BE IN US”

UK FLIGHTS: “NO CARRY-ON BAGGAGE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE”

10 August 2006; 0330 ET: Police in the U.K. have reportedly foiled a plot to smuggle explosive devices in airline hand luggage to blow up planes in mid-flight, or take over aircraft and [b]crash them into targets inside the U.S.[/b]

Police in the United Kingdom have reportedly arrested 18 suspects, and more being sought in the UK and at least 2 other countries, including the US. According to US intelligence sources close to the Northeast Intelligence Network, the investigation is expected to expand “well beyond the UK,” and described the threat to the US as “just the tip of the iceberg and very significant.”

In the U.S., the Department of Homeland Security raised the threat level to the “highest level” for commercial flights from Britain to the United States in response to the terror plot in London. The general threat level for all flights within the U.S. or entering the country has also been elevated.

Additional information is in the process of being developed and confirmed at this time.
