Terror plot foiled

The week's news at a glance.

Frankfurt, Germany

German police said this week they foiled a plot to blow up an Israeli airplane. Six people are under investigation for allegedly planning to bribe an airport worker to smuggle explosives onto an El Al flight. The six were detained only briefly, as the police didn’t have enough evidence to charge them. That’s the same tack police in Hamburg took with another alleged plot in 2002, when they arrested seven suspects for just a few hours. Authorities there later said that while they didn’t have evidence that would be admissible in court, they were convinced the men were about to act, so they intervened to thwart the plan.
