The controversial ban on passengers from some Muslim countries carrying electronic devices on planes heading to the UK was caused by an al-Qaida terror plot.
Anyone flying from Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries will have to store electronic devices larger than small phone in holding.
Many people vigorously protested against this ban, accusing the UK following the US and discriminating against Muslims. But security forces revealed that the alert was caused by the a branch of al-Qaida developing an laptop bomb to cause casualities.
Al-Shabab, a branch of al-Qaida claim to develop a laptop bomb that is designed to bypass airport security forces.
This sick terror group took the responsibility for a bomb of this type which exploded in a jet which was luckily at low altitude in Mogadishu last month. Fortunately, there was no casualties.
Another branch of al-Qaida is known to be developing hidden bombs to bring down a western plane.
“Terrorists are aggressively pursuing innovative measures to carry out attacks”, a statement from US officials, who implemented similar ban.
A spokesman for Theresa May accepted the ban would cause disruption to 2 million but was necessary for their safety. He said: “Safety of the travelling public is our highest priority. That is why we keep aviation security under constant review and put in place measures that are necessary, effective and proportionate”
