Bush details al-Qaeda hijack plot
Advertisements [?]

US President George Bush has revealed details of a foiled al-Qaeda plot to use a hijacked airliner to strike the west coast of the US. Mr Bush said the plotters, thwarted in 2002, planned to use shoe bombs to storm the plane cockpit.

The attackers would have flown the plane into the tallest building in Los Angeles, California.

Mr Bush said al-Qaeda recruited the militant Islamic group Jemaah Islamiyah to carry out the attack.

The president said the mastermind of the September 11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, was behind the west coast plot.
