Missing: One Suicide Vest

Yesterday we noted that London police raided a house where chemical weapons of some kind were apparently being produced. Today comes the chilling news that a chemical suicide vest is believed to be missing:

British police were searching for a “suicide vest” laced with dangerous chemicals after a raid of the alleged bomb factory yielded two suspects but no vest.

Police think the vest has been made and will be set off at a busy bus or train station, or in a crowd watching a World Cup game in a local pub, The Times said.

Law enforcement officers wearing oxygen masks and chemical protection gear raided the London house after receiving a tip that the vest had been assembled. The Times reports Scotland Yard thinks the vest was put together in the house.

UPDATE: Details are sketchy, but at least eight people have been arrested in the Toronto area and will be charged with plotting to set off explosives at as-yet-unspecified locations in Ontario. Preliminary reports is that those arrested are Muslims suspected of links to al Qaeda.

FURTHER UPDATE, via Power Line News: Canadian authorities say that 12 male adults and five “youths” have been taken into custody, and three tons of ammonium nitrate, triple the amount used in the Oklahoma City bombing, have been seized.
