    Canada plays a vital role in airport security and the ongoing fight against terror, says a well-known US cop who arrested the "Underwear Bomber" on Christmas Day 2009.

    "We are all inter-connected - some of the 9/11 hijackers had tried to enter the US from Canada," said Chief Edward Glomb, in town for the first International Airport Investigators' Training Symposium, being held at a hotel near the airport.

    Glomb, of Wayne County Airport Authority Police Dept., was an incident commander in the attempted bombing of Delta Airlines Flight 253 that was travelling to Detroit when a man tried to detonate a bomb in his underwear in a bathroom.
    Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, of Nigeria, is serving a life sentence for trying to blow up a U.S. airliner.

    The bomb caused a fire but failed to explode on the jet that was carrying 289 people.

    "We were very concerned about another 9/11 and thought others (with bombs) were coming," Glomb said at the symposium.
