Bomb hidden in body in Saudi attack “invisible” to normal detection – Homeland Security News Wire

A terrorist in Saudi Arabia tried to kill the Saudi antiterror chief by carrying explosives inside his body.

Peter Neuman of Kings College London says the case will be studied intensively, and that there are “tremendous implications for airport security with the potential of making it even more complicated to get on to your plane.”

“If it really is true that the metal detectors couldn’t detect this person’s hidden explosive device, that would mean that the metal detectors as they currently exist in airports are pretty much useless,” he said.
