Skal man tro gruppen som har påtatt seg ansvaret for London-bombene, Al Qaidas hemmelige organisasjon i Europa, så er Danmark neste terrormål, sammen med Italia.
The statement, which also threatened attacks against Italy and Denmark, said: «Rejoice, Islamic nation. Rejoice, Arab world. The time has come for vengeance against the Zionist crusader government of Britain in response to the massacres Britain committed in Iraq and Afghanistan.»
The group appeared to boast that it had spent some time planning the attack.
«We have repeatedly warned the British government and people. We have fulfilled our promise and carried out our blessed military raid in Britain after our Mujahideen exerted strenuous efforts over a long period of time to ensure the success of the raid,» the website posting read.
Michael Clarke, director of the Centre for Defence Studies at King’s College, London, said six bombs would mean at least 24 people were involved in planting them in a targeted operation.
The fact that London had been hit when the resources of the security forces were focused on the G8 summit at Gleneagles showed thoughtful preparation by terrorists.
«It will have been quite a big plot and months in the planning,» said Prof Clarke, who declined to speculate who was behind the attacks at this stage.
