Did Britain Stop A 9/11-Style Attack On London?

The French press service AFP and the UK service ITV report that unnamed sources in the British government claim that the UK prevented a specific Islamist plot to hijack commercial aircraft for suicide missions on London:

British security services have foiled an Al-Qaeda plot to fly planes into targets in London in a September 11-style attack, Britain's independent ITV News network reported.

"This is the story of what could have been a nightmare averted," said ITV's political editor Nick Robinson. "A story not of failure, but of success."

"That, at least, is what I am told by a senior authoritative source who says that the security services managed to avert a plot to fly planes into Canary Wharf here, and also into Heathrow Airport," he said.

AFP provides no specifics on the plot, not even if it was a recent development or something that happened a while ago. Hopefully more will be forthcoming soon.
