The Daily Telegraph Reports:
“A HUSBAND and wife arrested in the British terror raids allegedly planned to take their six-month-old baby on a mid-air suicide mission.
Scotland Yard police are quizzing Abdula Ahmed Ali, 25, and his 23-year-old wife Cossor over suspicions they were to use their baby’s bottle to hide a liquid bomb.
The theory is one of the reasons security chiefs are now insisting mothers taste babies’ milk at check-in desks before allowing them to take bottles aboard flights.
The pair are among up to 23 suspects being questioned over a plot to bring down nine airliners over five US cities, killing thousands of people in the air and on the ground.
The questioning of the group comes as British Government sources yesterday revealed many of those suspects posed as relief workers to travel to al-Qaeda training camps in Pakistan.
It has also been revealed that security services are secretly monitoring “dozens” of fresh plots involving hundreds of suspects which could be unleashed at any time.
One government source said at least 30 priority cases were under urgent investigation.
” All those 30 are seen as serious, determined attacks that will happen unless we stop them,” the source said.
Police spent yesterday combing through the Alis’ east London housing commission flat for clues.
Cossor took her baby with her to the police station during last week’s raids but her son is now being cared for by grandparents.
Cossor’s grandfather, Nazir Ahmed, 84, said Abdula had travelled to Pakistan about four weeks ago.
“We didn’t understand what the hurry was and why he needed to go,” Mr Ahmed said.”
