((two British news organizations report this morning that security services have foiled 9/11-style attacks against high profile London targets. One was the Canary Wharf office complex, which was bombed in 1996 by the Irish Republican Army. This time, terrorists linked to Al Qaeda planned to crash hijacked planes into its triple towers.
The terrorists were also reported to have planned a simultaneous suicide plane attack against London Heathrow, Europe's busiest airport. The reports this morning were carried by the Conservative Daily Mail and a British television network but they had few details and did not name the source.
Today, Queen Elizabeth reads the traditional speech to Parliament outlining the Labor government's program prior to next year's election. Top of the agenda will be laws authorizing phone taps and special courts to deal with the terrorist threat. Some observers question the timing of the new reports of threats.

Under the ordniance- a "dangerous dog" owner would have to carry 100-thousand dollars insurance on the animal, and that rubbed some canine caregivers the wrong way.
