Travellers to Europe face being treated like drug smugglers as security chiefs are expected to recommend new intrusive security measures.
French anti-terror chiefs are expected to propose the new measures, such as full body X-rays or handing in all electronic devices, after a terrorist tried to kill a Saudi prince with a bomb he had inserted into his body.
Al Qaeda's latest ploy was first pioneered by Abdullah Hassan al Asiri, who blew himself apart in Jeddah in late August in an attack on Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, the Saudi anti-terrorism chief.
The 23-year-old terrorist blew himself into 70 pieces when he detonated the bomb - inserted into his rectum - with a mobile phone.
His body was said to have absorbed some of the impact of the explosion, however, leaving the prince only slightly injured.
However experts claimed such a blast would be catastrophic in the pressurised atmosphere of a passenger jet.

Need a containment area and a means of setting off explosives.
We need to coat every surface near an airplane or airport with bacon flavored paint.
Where did I store my lead-lined undies?
And a place a safe distance away with a viewing platform- this sounds like too much fun
We’ve known about this for at least three years, the Feds just needed an excuse to push it through and (as usual) they “uncover a dastardly plot” that gives them carte blanche.
You have to figure out who to contain first, don’t you?
Dang it. That’s how I’ve been smuggling my laptop onboard. Oh, well...
“The 23-year-old terrorist blew himself into 70 pieces when he detonated the bomb - inserted into his rectum - with a mobile phone.”
What are the odds of blowing yourself up into exactly 70 pieces?
I’m thinkin’ it was probably messier than that...
A precautionary procedure that should have long been implimented.
“The 23-year-old terrorist blew himself into 70 pieces when he detonated the bomb...”
That’s almost one piece for each of his 72 virgins.
What a lame way to die.
....And somebody actually counted the pieces????
Where is General Black Jack Pershing when we need him?
Blew himself into 70 pieces larger than a cockroach.
Were the wires coming out of his anus the giveaway?
70 pieces...one for each of the 70 virgins.
The next player is Badmood al-Ickie Hassan Blopoo.
Place your bets.
Upon learning of the intrusive security measures this Congressman from Massachusetts was overheard saying, "I'm checking you for hidden explosives Darling. Yippee, this is fun. Let's go to Europe!"
stepping back in time...

LAX passenger hides objects in his body; bomb squad called

This is disturning on many levels -
LAX passenger hides objects in his body; bomb squad called His plane was diverted but deemed safe.
The Iraqi national, a legal U.S. resident, said he was trying to ease stress. He is turned over to ICE. By Andrew Blankstein, Times Staff Writer March 7, 2007
Authorities called in the bomb squad early Tuesday and diverted a flight to Las Vegas after Los Angeles International Airport security screeners found hidden wires and other objects in a body cavity of a Philadelphia-bound passenger.
Fadhel Al-Maliki, a 35-year-old Iraqi national living in Atlantic City, N.J., had been flagged by security officials at LAX and was undergoing a secondary “selectee screening” when he set off a metal detector.
Al-Maliki, a former security guard, told screeners that he knew what had triggered the alarm and proceeded to remove items from his rectum, including a rock, chewing gum and thin wire filament.
Larry Fetters, federal security director at LAX, said at news conference that Transportation Security Administration officers had become alarmed because Al-Maliki was acting strange but initially refused to identify the items he had hidden.
Concern that the objects might be components for an explosive device led airport authorities to call in the Los Angeles Police Department and FBI bomb technicians as well as a hazardous material team.
A preliminary investigation appeared to rule out a theory that Al-Maliki may have been looking for weaknesses in security or was rehearsing for a terrorist act, federal and local law enforcement authorities said.
During questioning, Al-Maliki said the objects in his rectum were used to alleviate stress, federal law enforcement sources said.
The rock, authorities said he told them, was from another planet. . .

Aha, now I understand... Thanks for the clarification! LOL...
It will spread the AIDS virus throughout the atmosphere! LOL.
Well... for security agencies the unfortunate truth is that this sort of bomb “placement” does create some difficult challenges. I don’t think any domestic agencies are seriously contemplating this yet, but it’s a [ahem] “hole” in the system nonetheless.
I do wonder if there isn’t just an inherent limitation in the volume of explosives that limits the blast effects. Maybe it would be tough to actually bring down a plane this way? Dunno, but if that one bomber could be sitting right next to his victim and still not inflict a fatal blast, it suggests that it may not be as much of a worry.
It does beg the question though about whether there’s something else that can be done to defeat this. It’ll be used again.
Hmm... Yah know... even if nobody on board has exposives up there... I'm thinking this would still not be a good thing.
Can you visualize the terrorists sitting around the campfire and saying, OK lets put some explosives in our fillings, and see what the TSA Does. Hehehehe. Or, ear’s. or maybe your fat wife’s.......
Security lines will be hours long.
I don't think so. As soon as they start body X-Raying people, you'll lose about 50% of those that are still flying. And that means the terrorists have won.
With the cost of a CT scan at $1000 and the cost of a round trip ticket to NYC at $275, I think the next time I need a CT scan, I’ll fly to NYC and get the scan for free.
ah, then it wasn't another one of those chewing gum commercials gone terribly wrong! "come on, where is it, give it up! Never!"
no, it's more like "today's science lab is on electromagnetism, children."
I dont care to be exposed to full body x-rays every time I fly. I’m all for security, but this would be very dangerous. Frequent flyers would max their radiation exposure very quickly, and none of us need extra radiation.
They will have to figure out another way.....
Here is a little clue for the airline industry:
Use full body x-rays on all young middle eastern men and leave the Irish grandma’s and Swedish babies alone. OK? You are not going to find bombs hiding in the Norweigan grandmas and the English babies. Stick to full-body x-raying the young middle eastern men and you just might get somewhere.
Rectal examinations/probing for all then?
As for your claim of radiation exposure, try this: http://science.howstuffworks.com/backscatter.htm
Sorry to say, the jihad is global and that includes Ireland, Sweden, Norway, etc.
ON THE INTERNET:
Uh, I disagree with you Inspector Clouseau...
but, remember, it violates political correctness to do any type of profiling of passengers. We need to prove to Muslim groups, liberals, etc. that we’re not discriminating, and the only way to do that is to search everybody.
Is profiling illegal; does anybody know? I’m puzzled too, to see old women in wheelchairs coming through, being screened so thoroughly. And they are forced to take off their shoes, which for some elderly and disabled is a chore in itself. If security can’t make judgements as to who is likely to be a threat, I don’t know what to tell anybody.
I’m not opposed to screening. I just dont need any extra x ray exposure, no matter how insignificant. I get enough at work. And I am sure the machines are well calibrated and controlled, and run by medical personnel /s
Political correctness is the single most evil, insidious abomination that threatends the USA that has been achieved by the communist left in my lifetime. It needs to end. We will NEVER return to the greatness we once had if we can’t call a spade a spade, use plain language, hold people personally responsible for their actions, reward the achievers.
No more giving all kids the same grade. No more playing sports and not keeping score. No more fear of saying a naughty word will get you fired. No more fear of calling out those who are our enemies.
Do they teach proctology in EOD school, or do you simply blow in place?
“Thats how Ive been smuggling my laptop onboard.”
Someone may justifiably call you a big a**hole. lol
Robotics is yer friend !
BIP would be first choice.
Assisted in surgery a few but never the snuke or turd torpedo.
