TERRORISTS are plotting to blow up five passenger jets in a Christmas “spectacular”, security experts say.
U.S. intelligence is reported to have discovered a terrorist plot to blow up at least five European commercial air liners over the Christmas holiday.
The threat is considered so seriously that U.K. officials are considering outright bans on carry on luggage or electronics in carry-on bags or on passengers.
Whitehall officials now admit that a terrorist attack is “almost inevitable” considering the number of British Jihadis returning from the Islamic State conflict.
Reports state that at least five planes have been targeted for a high-profile attack during the winter holidays.
It is suspected that Jihadists will board planes in other countries bound for Europe as many EU nations have not stepped up security as tightly as the U.S. or Israel.
