The BBC reported that the terrorist threat level at major the UKs major transportation hubs was raised from substantial to severe on Friday.

The report said that the British news network had been presented with a letter to aviation industry officials warning that al-Qaida "may be considering an attack."

The letter, from the British Department of Transportation, explained that threats are "credible." It added that the "economic, political and psychological significance of the UK aviation sector, coupled with the large crowds present within some of its major assets, would enable a successful attack to fulfill al-Qaeda's objectives."
