Terrorists Planned To Blow Up Plane With 'Barbie Bomb'

Recently a plan to blow up an Etihad flight at Sydney airport was foiled by security officials, and the men responsible were arrested.

According to new reports, the men accused of trying to blow up the flight out of Sydney, planned to smuggle the bomb on board inside a large Barbie doll, Lebanese officials claim.

The bomb was previously alleged to have been concealed inside a meat grinder, but was never checked onto Etihad Airways flight EY451 from Sydney to Abu Dhabi because it was too heavy.

Three Lebanese-Australian brothers allegedly planned the attack, and two of the men were charged following terror raids in Sydney.

Khaled Khayat and Mahmoud Khayat were both charged with two counts of acting in preparation for, or planning, a terrorist act.
