Source Says Attacks Were Planned For 2 Major Sites

POSTED: 8:21 pm EST November 22, 2004

LONDON -- A British broadcast report says British security services thwarted a planned 9/11-style terror attack on Heathrow Airport and Canary Wharf, a financial district of London.

ITV News is reporting that plans to crash planes into the two high-profile targets were among four or five al-Qaida strikes that security chiefs believe they stopped.

ITV also quotes an unidentified government source who indicates that authorities also disrupted training programs for suicide pilots. The report did not say when or where the plots were uncovered, or how close they came to being carried out.

British security officials, Metropolitan Police in London and a spokesman for the prime minister aren't commenting on the report.
