London, Nov 6 (ANI): Al Qaeda terrorists tried to bring down a US cargo plane by stuffing dogs with bombs.
US officers at Baghdad airport found two animals, stuffed with bombs and detonators. The bombs had been prepared to explode during the aircraft's flight to LA.
But the dogs were never loaded on board as they had been killed by the lethal substances inside them.
The discovery, kept secret for two years, was revealed in France, days after explosives were found inside printer cartridges last week, The Sun reports.
One terrorism expert said: "It shows al-Qaeda militants' determination to wreak destruction by any means." (ANI)
