So much for body scanners

From the Times of India:

LONDON: Al-Qaida is laying deadly “booby traps” by equipping its female suicide bombers with explosive breast implants that are impossible to be detected at airport security checkpoints, British intelligence agency MI5 has claimed.

“Women suicide bombers recruited by al-Qaida are known to have had the explosives inserted in their breasts under techniques similar to breast enhancing surgery,” the British newspaper Sun quoted terrorist expert Joseph Farah, as saying.

The lethal explosives called PETN are inserted inside plastic shapes during the operation, before the breast is then sewn up, he added.

According to the MI5, al-Qaida doctors have been trained at some of Britain’s leading teaching hospitals before returning to their own countries to perform the surgical procedures.

The intelligence agency has also discovered that extremists are inserting the explosives into the buttocks of some male suicide bombers.

I only have two questions:

  • Are the ladies required to wear niqabs while receiving the boob job?
  • For the men, will the bomb’s fuse be routed through the obvious orifice?
