India puts airports on high alert over Al-Qaeda attack fears


India declared a high security alert at several of its airports following the discovery of an anonymous letter threatening car bomb attacks by the Al-Qaeda terror network, officials said.

Government officials said security had been tightened at six airports in the south, including Bangalore, after a security advisory was sent to most Indian airports.

“The high alert was sounded following the discovery of a threatening letter at a rubbish bin in Chennai airport,” a home ministry official in New Delhi said on Thursday.

“All necessary security measures have been put in place at all the airports to thwart any attack,” said the official, who asked not to be named.
