Report: Al-Qaeda terror group returns to target airliners and airports

Al-Qaeda terror group claims to have possession of a new technology that can bring down passenger jets, possibly with the use of drones.

The Sunday Times reports:

The terrorist group behind the 9/11 attacks in 2001 poses a growing threat that is keeping ministers “awake at night”, he told The Sunday Times.

Wallace said intelligence had revealed that al-Qaeda was developing technology to bring down passenger jets. Whitehall officials say that could include miniaturised bombs. Islamists have also plotted to use drones packed with explosives to blow up key targets.
