Terrorist plot foiled

British authorities have reportedly foiled a plot to blow up several trans-atlantic passenger flights with explosives concealed in carry-on luggage. As a result a number of arrests have been made and MI5 have raised the terrorist threat level to critical.

This has also resulted in an aggressive clamp down on airport secuirty with a ban being placed on carry-on luggage, except essentials carried in plastic bags.

America has also raised its threat level to the highest point
