Emerging Threat: Body Cavity Bombers
Date: 4 December 2018
The best lesson the past has taught us is that next time it will be different. Yet so many of our screening protocols address loopholes exposed by previous attacks, both realised and attempted. With customs authorities and the prison services both being able to demonstrate the use of internal carries to circumvent security controls on a daily basis, the author of the book Body Cavity Bombers examines the potential threat to aviation by a person who either swallows or inserts a device into their body or even goes so far as to undergo surgery to achieve their goals.
