Western intelligence uncovers al-Qaida plot

by Shannon Lee
Western security agencies are tracking an early-stage al-Qaida terror plot based in Pakistan believed to target the U.K., France and Germany.
U.S. officials told the Wall Street Journal Tuesday that investigators are trying to determine if the terror plot could involve the U.S.
France and Germany are in a heightened state of security alert, reported the BBC. France has expanded the number of police officers outside its national landmarks.
The U.S. has increased its number of unmanned target airstrikes in Pakistan in an attempt to hinder the terrorist plan, which brought criticism from some media outlets in Europe, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The al-Qaida plan is considered one of the most serious attack plots in recent years, the BBC reported.
