“Al-Qaeda’s car bomb guide
London terror analysis: Online manual on car bombs instructs terrorists ‘not to park illegally’”
Published: 07.01.07, 16:18 / Israel News
ARTICLE SNIPPET: “The bombing manual, available in Arabic on a jihadi website, contains a number of key pieces of advice for car bombers. It instructs terrorists not to park their vehicles illegally, and advises the car bomber to leave the scene quietly, if he plans to detonate the vehicle from a distance, in what al-Qaeda terms “non-martyrdom operations.”
Fortunately, these guidelines were not adhered to by the two London car bombers, one of whom crashed his vehicle and fled the scene, arousing suspicion, while the other parked his vehicle illegally, resulting in the car being towed away from its intended target.
The manual details precise locations inside the vehicle where explosives should be placed, and recommends various targerts such as “cinemas” and “stadiums.”
Other forms of explosives, the guide says, should be aimed at “groupings demonstrations, celebrations or festivals.”
The guide calls on terrorists to “monitor and identify the route of the enemy, how they leave a cinema or a stadium at the end of a game,” and also gives instructions on how to carry out suicide car bombings.
“Drive the car on the road passing the crowd. If a car passes near these places, it could draw the attention of the enemy, and the car could be inspected,” the guide said. It went on to explain in detail how suicide car bombers can fool security guards, and suggests a correct speed to drive a vehicle packed with explosives into a target.
The placing of such a guide on the internet allows al-Qaeda members around the world to access this experience. In Britain, the target audience is a radical core of jihadis made up of thousands of young British Muslims who have sworn allegiance to al-Qaeda.”

Chavez hints at nuclear future for Venezuela

ARTICLE SNIPPET: “President Hugo Chávez yesterday hinted that Venezuela could try to become a nuclear power, during a visit to Russia apparently timed to antagonise the White House. Mr Chávez defended Iran’s right to pursue a nuclear programme and said it might be a good idea if Venezuela eventually did the same thing. Speaking before an audience of communists and other elements hostile to America, Mr Chávez said: “Iran has a right to have a peaceful atomic energy industry, as it is a sovereign country.”
Thank you, Ian.
Thanks for the ping!

“Profile: Control order absconders
What do we know about the three men subject to control orders who have absconded?”
Last Updated: Thursday, 24 May 2007, 13:07 GMT 14:07 UK
“Search continues for absconders
It is thought the three men could be together”

The search is continuing for three terror suspects, believed to want to kill UK troops abroad, who went missing while subject to control orders.
Home Secretary John Reid said they were not a “direct threat” to people in the UK but added they were dangerous.
ARTICLE SNIPPET: “Earlier, security watchdog Lord Carlile said there was “solid evidence” the men had wanted to join insurgents abroad.
Lamine Adam, 26, his brother Ibrahim, 20, and Cerie Bullivant, 24, failed to report to police earlier this week.
The Adams’ brother, Anthony Garcia, is serving life for plotting explosions.
Garcia was one of five men jailed last month over a plot to target the UK with a giant fertiliser bomb.
During the trial, the Old Bailey heard that the plot’s ringleader asked Lamine Adam and Garcia to buy the key bomb ingredient because their fairer skin would arouse less suspicion.
Mr Adam knew many of the key conspirators in that case, but was not prosecuted as part of the investigation.
Bullivant had previously appeared at the Old Bailey for breaching his control order.
Listed as “AG”, he appeared at the Old Bailey on 2 and 16 April this year on charges of breaching 13 conditions of his control order.
He was next due to appear on 29 May.
Mr Reid told the House of Commons the security services did not assess the three individuals as presenting a direct threat to people in the UK.

But he added: “They are dangerous and we can take nothing for granted.”
In a written statement released earlier Mr Reid said the orders had been designed to stop the men travelling overseas because it was believed they wanted to leave the country for “terrorism-related purposes”.
He said they had been required to surrender travel documents and report to a police station every day, but had failed to turn up on Tuesday.”
