Security agencies suspect that al-Qaida is planning new attacks in Europe. Details of a possible 'Euro Plot' remain unclear, but ex-jihadist Noman Benotman, a former trainer in terror camps, believes that al-Qaida wants to take hostages here to force the release of 9/11 terror mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Experts say the theory is plausible.
