38. Read the Orignial Article
This story reports on a story run in The Sunday Times so it makes sense to find that story.

The report says there is no indication this attack would specifically target Britain, although we are aware that AQI . . . networks are active in the UK.


It could be just a reference to a huge explosion, said a counter-terrorist source. They have got to do something soon that is radical otherwise they start losing credibility.

Despite aspiring to a nuclear capability, Al-Qaeda is not thought to have acquired weapons grade material. However, several plots involving dirty bombs - conventional explosive devices surrounded by radioactive material - have been foiled.

Last year Al-Qaedas leader in Iraq called on nuclear scientists to apply their knowledge of biological and radiological weapons to the field of jihad.
