Plot to blow up El Al plane in Germany thwarted...

Amazingly, the suspects have been released...
Six people are under investigation in Germany over an alleged terrorist plot to blow up an El Al Airlines commercial aircraft in Frankfurt, prosecutors said Monday.

The six, as well as other people who have not yet been identified, are believed to have conspired on behalf of "so far unknown" terrorist backers, federal prosecutors said in a statement.

According to an official statement, some of the suspects approached an airport employee with security clearance at the Frankfurt International Airport last summer, and convinced the person to smuggle a case or bag containing explosives onto an El AL plane in an exchange for an unspecified payment, it added.

Preparations were halted, however, because the plotters disagreed with the airport employee over the amount to be paid for his part in the plan.

LOL! Shades of the jihadis in the first World Trade Center bombing getting caught, because one idiot insisted on showing up at the truck rental place afterwards to get a refund on the cash deposit for the "stolen" van!
