Looks like airport security has a terror mole…..
The more frightening aspect of this is, anyone in security could wave a laptop laden with explosives through the screening process. So ensuring of the integrity of security has to be of number one concern, as it is in the CIA or in other intelligence communities.
Handed a bomb once he had already cleared Customs: CCTV footage shows moment suspected bomber of Somali jet is handed a laptop in which explosives were concealed
Somali authorities release CCTV in connection with plane blast

This is the extraordinary CCTV footage of the suspected bomber of a Somali plane at the exact moment when he is being handed a laptop in which the explosives were concealed.
The video, released by Somali intelligence officials, shows a passenger being given a laptop by two other men, one of whom is wearing a security jacket, after he passed through security.
The National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA) believes the passenger is the suicide bomber who was blown from the Daallo Airlines jet creating a gaping hole in the fuselage and forcing the plane to make an emergency landing back at the Mogadishu airport.

He is being given a laptop, which investigators believe contained the explosives that ripped a hole in the Daallo airlines jet
It is believed the laptop-like device was the bomb that caused the explosion. The plane’s pilot said that if the explosion happened when the aircraft was at a higher altitude it could have caused the jet to crash.
‘There are investigations going on and about 15 people have been arrested so far in connection with the incident,’ a Somali security official who asked not to be named told AFP.
‘The initial investigation results indicate that the bomb was planted in a laptop and was carried by one of the passengers.
‘A CCTV camera recorded some of the activities and the attack is believed to have been coordinated by a network of individuals, many of whom have been arrested and are being investigated,’ the source added.
The authorities had initially attributed the blast to sudden air decompression.
