A British-based terror expert is warning people worldwide to be on their guard against terror attacks this holiday season. Glen Jenvey said he has heard a number of terror watchers warn of a possible increase in international terrorism in the weeks leading up to Christmas. "To counter this," Jenvey said in an e-mail interview, "the public need to become the eyes and eyes of the intelligence service, reporting any thing that is not normal or any sinister messages they spot on the Internet."
Al-Qaeda may apparently be working on another grand terrorist act, this time for Europe. According to reports received from Western intelligence services, al-Qaeda’s terrorists prepare to explode 30 planes and trains across Europe on Christmas time. The terrorist act is said to be conducted at the end of December, when many people book Christmas tours or simply travel to celebrate holidays with their relatives or friends.
The thwarted bomb plot at a Chicago-area mall — news of which broke Friday with the arrest of a man armed with grenades and plans to use them — is likely to trigger holiday shoppers' worst fears about their safety as they brave crowds and troll for gifts.
But malls and the security companies that protect them are ratcheting up efforts to prevent a successful attack at the busiest season of the year — posting more security officers, working with police, installing more cameras and even putting up observation towers in parking lots.
