According to an ABC News report, Taliban military officer Mansour Dadullah claims that plans are in the works for large-scale terror attacks. Dadullah delivered his ominous message to a reporter in Pakistan, where al-Qaida and Taliban operatives are said to be gaining in strength and numbers.
This report from Britain’s The Independent cases out the identities of the men and one woman associated with the recent attempted attacks in London and Glasgow, revealing some of their names, possible motives and backgrounds. A noteworthy detail: Five of the eight people arrested are doctors.
Two men have been detained for allegedly attempting to drive a flaming Jeep Cherokee into the main terminal at Glasgow Airport. Only a day before, two cars were found in London packed with explosives and nails. Britain’s national terrorism threat level remains “critical,” the highest possible.
