Terrorists Seeking Ways to Surgically Implant Explosives into Fliers on International Flights

According to an NBC newswire federal authorities have notified airlines overseas that have flights coming into the United States that terrorists are seeking to create “human bombs” by surgically implanting them inside of a potential suicide bomber.

There is no current indication of an actual threat at this time, but groups are seeking to find ways of carrying out this type of attack. It is important to note here that if they can employ such a device the airlines will not be the only targets and it becomes increasingly difficult to tell if someone is carrying a device in a crowd.

People will have to increasingly rely on things that look out of place and the level of anxiety among other things to locate potential attackers.
