Gatwick and Stuttgart: there is fear of an attack in the skies of europe. The London airport remained closed for more than a day due to the presence of drones on the landing area. Shortly thereafter, terrorism alert at the German airport where the security system was violated. Four wanted people were taking pictures at the airport and they thought they wanted to prepare an attack. At least one of them comes from the Islamic radical extremism. Two of the wanted, father and son, had already been surprised by the French police to photograph the Parisian airport Charles de Gaulle. Following the incident, the German police massively strengthened security measures at Stuttgart airport and another 13 airports in Germany. In short, alert terrorism and attack in the skies of Europe.
In London passengers are advised to check the status of their flight with the airlines before leaving, also because despite the airport has been reopened, many delays and cancellations are expected. And everything still depends on the possible reappearance of drones. It remains a mystery of who the drones were and why they were using them. Even here you think to take pictures and shoot video.
The airport was closed Wednesday evening, around 22:00, after two drones were spotted above the landing strip. The airport reopened briefly during the night but then Thursday closed for the whole day, while the drones continued to reappear, in a sort of cat and mouse game. More than 120,000 people were trapped while drones were spotted fifty times.
The army was called to help the police, who nevertheless spoke of a "deliberate act" to sow chaos. According to the Telegraph it was "ecologist guerrillas". Anyone is up to five years in prison: the law regulating the use of drones has been strengthened this year in the United Kingdom and has banned its use within one kilometer of an airport and at altitudes above 122 meters.
