It's being said there's a new fear among security experts that woman terrorists could hide explosives in their bodies.
Al-Qaeda's chief bomb maker, Ibrahim al-Asiri, is thought to have developed explosives that could be hidden in breast implants.
The breast explosive implants would be hard to detect if not impossible. Heathrow Airport is on high alert because of this possible threat.
The implant explosives could be hidden in women's breasts or other body cavities, for this reason there are grave concerns that al-Qaeda could attack using this method.
While body scanners are said to be good at picking up objects outside the body, it could prove difficult to detect explosives inside someone's body. Due to these new fears the lines at airports at Heathrow, in Europe and America are taking longer to get through.
The Telegraph reports: "The general alert state remains the same in the UK but overseas, the recent Pakistan prison breakouts and foiled attacks in Yemen are raising fears of a new jihadist wave of violence.”
Explosives expert say that the bombs could be detonated two ways, by chemical reaction, injecting another liquid into the implant, or by radio controlled detonators. There are also fears that al-Qaeda might have developed an undetectable liquid that could be absorbed into clothing.
