Al Qaeda Plotting on a Trans-Atlantic Basis

A failed New York subways bomb plot last year  has been tied to an Al Qaeda terrorist conspiracy that planned a similar attack in England, U.S. prosecutors say.

Attorney General Eric Holder has called the New York subway plot  one of the most dangerous since 9/11.

In an indictment unsealed earlier this month, U.S. prosecutors said the charges “underscore the global nature of the terrorist threat we face.”  In other words, Al Qaeda activists may be busy on both sides of the Atlantic. Security no doubt are paying heed.
