AP: Somali arrested with crotch bomb materials
The Associated Press is reporting that a man from Somalia tried to board a flight last month with the same bomb-making materials associated with the Nigerian terrorist.
The story doesn't make clear if the so-far unnamed man was just delivering the chemicals and powders rather than acting as a potential suicide bomber, and what city in the U.S. might ultimately have been targeted.
But this only adds fuel to my
belief suspicion that Minneapolis-bound flights may be getting additional airline security due to its Somali population.
