An official US report has confirmed al-Qaeda planned to hijack flights from Heathrow and fly planes into the airport and a Canary Wharf skyscraper. Reports of such a plot had surfaced in the media before but have not previously been confirmed. It is believed the plot was disrupted by security services, although arrests are not thought to have been made. The report lists nine attempts by al-Qaeda - aside from 11 September - to attack aviation targets worldwide. Full story here BBC News Oh great joy! And people still think that the Police/Security services are being heavy handed and racist? After this report I sincerely hope not but I will not hold my breath.
