U.S.: Threat Of Car Bombs In Tunnels

1 MIN READOct 18, 2005 | 22:14 GMT
An informant reportedly told authorities that six Egyptian terrorists were to receive bomb-making materials that would be shipped to the harbor in Baltimore, Md., in a container marked "Cocoa," ABC News reported Oct. 18. The materials were then to be used to make bombs that would be placed in cars and used to blow up either the Harbor Tunnel, the Ft. McHenry Tunnel or both. Both of the tunnels were closed Oct. 18. MSNBC reported that the information did not come from al Qaeda or Iraq, and federal authorities are unsure of the threat's credibility, as the information has not been corroborated and is several days old.
