But they deny responsibility for the Riyadh bombing
More threats from Al-Qaeda, from The Evening Standard:
One of the most senior figures in the al Qa’eda terror group has pledged that 2004 will be a year of attacks on America.
The comments appeared on an Islamist website and are believed to have come from Abdulaziz Issa Abdul-Mohsin al-Moqrin.
The website also carries a warning that Saudi Arabian rulers will be unable to prevent further attacks.
However, he also claims that al Qa’eda was not behind last week’s suicide car bombing of a security building in the Saudi capital Riyadh.
Security officials believe that al-Moqrin is al-Qa’eda’s leader in Saudi Arabia, with a major police operation currently attempting to capture him.
The Al Haramain Brigades, a Saudi militant group, have claimed responsibility for last week’s Riyadh attack and said they were filling in for al Qaeda, which was preoccupied fighting “crusaders”.
