Fears grow of a next-generation ‘underwear bomber’

With a number of American embassies closed because of feared al-Qaeda attacks, there are unconfirmed reports that the feared attack could use the next generation of the underwear bomb that was used in the failed Christmas day bombing in 2009. This and other technologies are thought to be developed by Ibrahim al-Asiri, a senior terrorist in Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), the original developer of the underwear bomb. One technology is a new liquid explosive that absorbed into ordinary clothing that becomes explosive once the liquid dries. Another is a surgically implanted body bomb. It’s not thought that current Transportation Security Administration (TSA) measures can detect either of these kinds of bombs, though a TSA official says, “As always, our security posture, which at all times includes a number of measures both seen and unseen, will continue to respond appropriately to protect the American people from an ever evolving threat picture.” ABC News
