CBS News: Terrorists Constructing Laptop Bombs That Can Be Smuggled Onto Airplanes

“As Americans finalize their holiday travel plans, terrorists overseas are busy constructing sophisticated laptop bombs that can be smuggled onto planes. An attack took place in Somalia in February of last year.  CCTV footage shows two men going into the airport from the tarmac. One is carrying a laptop. At one point, he slips the rigged computer to the bomber in the coffee shop.  The man was the head of Mogadishu’s airport security at the time. The laptop exploded shortly after takeoff, and blew a hole in the side of the plane. Passengers remained calm. Only the bomber was killed.  But Islamic militants of al-Shabab continue to try and perfect the laptop bomb. In fact, they’d tried to plant a bomb a day earlier, but the flight was canceled.  In the past 18 months, three other computer bombs were found after one partially exploded in a cargo hold.”
