Officials: High Alert for Body Bombs

With the first anniversary of Osama bin Laden’s May 2 killing fast approaching, officials revealed Monday that they were on high alert for body bombs used by terrorists on U.S.-bound flights. Security at British airports and other locations around the world has been stepped up, as officials believe that terrorists might try to hide bombs inside their bodies to get them on a plane. Additional air marshals have been moved overseas in advance of the anniversary. Medical experts say it is feasible to build a metal-less bomb to fit inside the abdominal cavity.
