Agents for Britain's MI5 intelligence service have released information that suggests some Muslim doctors who have trained in Britain's top hospitals are now returning to their home countries and fitting women with breast implants that contain explosives. The lethal explosives – usually PETN (pentaerythritol Tetrabitrate) are inserted in the patient in a similar fashion as traditional breast implants would be, then the breast is sewn up.
According to some reports this is and will be the "new" form of suicide bombing. The London based intelligence agency was tipped off to this new development after London-educated Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab unsuccessfully tried to blow up an airliner on Christmas day. Immediately following that incident, lots of "chatter" regarding the exploding breast implants was intercepted by GCHQ – Britain's worldwide eavesdropping "spy in the sky" agency. A hand picked team was put together immediately by, Jonathan Evans, the head of MI5 to investigate and research the plausibility of these new "exploding" devices. What was uncovered is staggering.
In a report to Evans, one said:
"Properly inserted the implant would be virtually impossible to detect by the usual airport scanning machines. You would need to subject a suspect to a sophisticated X-ray. Given that the explosive would be inserted in a sealed plastic sachet, and would be a small amount, would make it all the more impossible to spot it with the usual body scanner."
This report is so sad and extremely unsettling. All in all most government agencies believe we will have to amp up security and update the type of scanning and x-ray technologies used in airports to combat this new threat.
