Britian Searching Desperately for Lethal "Chemical Vest"

Within hours apart, Canada foils a terror attack and in London a nervous informant tips off the M15 with details of a new terrorist device. More than 200 police conducted a raid. Is the United States next and possibly soon?

Via The Times - London
A DESPERATE search is under way for a “chemical vest” that a British suicide bomber was ready to deploy in a terror attack on London.
Police fear that the strike, using a home-made chemical device, was imminent after an informant told MI5 that he had seen the lethal garment at the home of two young men.
He said that there had been no time to conduct further surveillance, which suggests that the police believed a terrorist was close to launching an attack. The fear is that if chemicals were to be used then a likely target could be a train compartment on the London Underground.
Another theory is that a suicide attacker, wearing the vest under a shirt, could trigger the device in a crowded venue, such as a pub full of people watching an England World Cup match.

All the suspects were Muslims both in Canada and England.
