These three men were caught before they tried to blow up planes in 2006.
The BBC’s been told that more plots are likely- and that Al Quaeda has an “obesession” with commercial airliners.
Here’s how those close to the story reacted, but what about you ? ?
Here’s how you’ve been reacting at the Have Your Say site :
* Some have been praising the security services who foiled the plot – “the police did a superb job of preventing this atrocity- well done! ”
* Some say we should accept an erosion of some freedoms for the greater good : “we should concentrate our efforts on those individuals whose profile is high risk. It may be seen as victimisation or racism, but the sad fact that all of these terrorists from 9/11 onwards all share similar ethnic and demographic data ”
* Some say there’s nothing to worry about : “I don’t believe the terror threat is anywhere near as severe as we are led to believe by our fear mongering government and senationalist press.”
* and some are worried. ; “One atrocity averted but 2000 individuals & at least 30 groups still plotting murder on a mass scale, & those are the ones the security forces know about….. We are sitting ducks.”
What about you ?
