President Barack Obama said he would meet the heads of US intelligence agencies on Tuesday to discuss ways of preventing a repeat of the attempted bombing of a Detroit-bound airliner on December 25.

Obama said in a statement he expected to receive assessments from several intelligence agencies on Thursday evening and would review them during the weekend. He ordered the assessments after criticising what he called the systemic failure that allowed the accused bomber to board the plane in Amsterdam.
