New terror threat issued by the U.S. Government - Cleveland 19 News Cleveland, OH

New terror threat issued by the U.S. Government

The government has issued a warning about a new terror threat.

The U.S. government is warning airlines that some terrorists are considering surgically implanting explosives into humans to carry out attacks.

Right now, we are told there is no specific plot or target but the U.S. is alerting executives of domestic and international airlines.

The so-called human bombs are not a new idea but terrorists are revisiting the theory.

Surgical implants said to be harder to detect in security screenings.

So, the TSA says people traveling to the U.S. from overseas may experience additional airport screenings.

Another reminder is that terrorists continue to look for new ways to strike the U.S. especially in the wake of Osama bin Laden's death.
