Intelligence services in Europe are warning that the Islamic State terror group may be considering using bombs filled with toxic gasses on trains, metro systems or even aeroplanes.
The warning was initially given to European security agencies by an unnamed foreign intelligence service who passed on information that the Islamic State was looking into deploying chemical or biological weapons in the near future.
Even more concerning for authorities is that many of the chemicals mentioned in the report, like hydrogen sulphide, are relatively simple for terrorists to acquire, Die Weltreports.
Other potential chemicals named were chlorine and various acids which can be deadly in enclosed spaces like a subway car or an aeroplane. Acid attacks have grown to near-epidemic proportions in the UK according to Dr Martin Niall, a burn surgeon at Mid-Essex Hospital.
Though so far there has been no indication of links between acid attacks in the UK and radical Islamic terrorism, a report from earlier this year claimed that the country is now the world capital for such attacks.
