American banks in London have tightened up their security measures after the discovery of a computer containing detailed plans for al-Qaeda attacks in
the US and UK. Financial institutions in the US approached Scotland Yard for advice regarding the heightened alert.
The proposals were said to be found in e-mails on the computer of Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, captured after a gun battle in Pakistan on 25 July.
BBC defence correspondent Paul Adams said the detailed planning for attacks on American buildings contrasted with "extremely vague" information on
British targets. But Pakistani officials insist the encrypted e-mails did include threats to unspecified British targets.

Weather or not this new information is 4 years old there still seems to be some cause for this new alert why else would they arrest two people one
named Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, In which a 12-hour gun battle lasted with Pakistani police and “another very wanted man believed to be a computer and
communications expert,” could these two people be a small contact centre for al-Qaeda Where they can send a receive information; And what has caused
the step up in security around these banks.
I have't seen anything in manchester or anyting else where with armed guards around banks why is london considerd to be at threat when birmingham ,
manchster, Liverpool, Glasgow are among the next biggest city's. IM not sure if any of tham have american banks but they must have outher countrys
that are on al-Qaeda books?
