According to US security authorities, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has published new bomb recipes in their glossy magazine Inspire. Now security at all US airports are tightened, CNN writes.
The US website The Intercept writes about what they call al-Qaeda's modern dilemma.
The group claims to have the perfect recipe for a deadly bomb, but they are too embarrassed to write where it should be placed.
The magazine instead refers to "place the bomb where airport employees are not going to, or has the right to look at or pat down, which Umar Farooq did."
Umar Farooq Abdulmutallab, known as the underwear bomber, failed to blow up a plane headed to the United States in 2009. A spokesperson for transport security officials later said that Abdulmutallab had not changed his underwear for several weeks, thus weakening the explosives.
The magazine also refers to another incident, where the suicide bomber went even further than Abdulmutallab. In an attempt to kill counterterrorist chief Mohammed bin Nayef, the bomb maker used his brother's anus to hide the bomb.
Counterterrorism experts says that the recipe may be the most detailed and potentially most deadly ever published.
The magazine also writes about how to get through the security checkpoint with the bomb, as well as to where to sit on the plane, but avoids words to describe where it should be placed.
The magazine writes that "lone wolves" should take responsibly for an attack by writing emails that are timed to be sent out afterwards.
The new bomb recipe contain similarities with a bomb formula previously published by the group. This had the headline "Make a bomb in your mother's kitchen." The recipe was downloaded and used, among others by the terrorists who attacked the Boston Marathon, and several other extremists.
Several American, British and French airlines are mentioned by name in the publication. The group's goal is to undermine the US economy, and the magazine writes that although the bombs are discovered or is defective, it will bring terror to the West.
The increased security measures will include additional check of random passengers and baggage security check, in addition to testing for traces of explosives on passengers' hands.
