According to the Times of London, there are indications that additional terror attacks may be planned for this weekend.
The most solid evidence so far is the discovery that five associates of the suicide gang had booked seats on two flights from Texas to California on Saturday. FBI agents are trying to capture as many key operatives as possible before any plot can be put into action.
Water, gas and electricity suppliers, bridges, tunnels and underground railways have increased security because of the perceived threat of biological, chemical or physical attacks.
Three Arab airport workers in Detroit were arrested after FBI agents found them in a house with handwritten sketches of an airport, aircraft and runways. They had a notebook containing information about the ?American base in Turkey,? ?Alia Airport? in Jordan and the ?American foreign minister.? Ahmed Hanna, age 33, Karim Koubriti, 23, and Farouk Ali-Halmoud, 21, who are from Morocco and Algeria, all worked at Detroit Metropolitan Airport preparing airline food.
FBI agents discovered them while searching the address of Habil al-Marabh, a suspected associate of the World Trade Center hijackers. The Arabs say they didn?t know him. They have been charged with conspiracy and possession of false immigration papers.
The FBI is trying to prevent more attacks this Saturday. ?Yes, we have heard something about September 22 but nothing specific,? an investigative source says. ?We have information that leads us to believe that there could be more attacks very soon. The same murky sources that indicated something might be happening in the weeks before the attacks have indicated something may be happening this weekend.?
Bob Graham, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, says that the New York and Washington suicide strikes were ?part of a larger plan with other terrorism acts, not necessarily the hijacking of airplanes.?
The FBI has issued a ?watch list? of 223 people suspected of being associates of the hijackers. Nearly one-fourth of the people on the list know how to fly airplanes.
