Zarqawi plans chemical attack in Europe: German press
font size    

Jordan-born terrorist Abu Musab al Zarqawi, operating in Iraq, is planning to launch chemical weapons attacks in Europe, a German magazine reported Wednesday.

"Somewhere in Europe there's going to be a big bang and it will have been organized by Zarqawi," said a German Federal Intelligence Service (BND) official quoted by the political magazine Cicero.

The unnamed BND source said it was unclear how far Zarqawi's agents had gone to prepare for a chemical attack. "We just know that he's working on it," a BND agent told the magazine.

The magazine said Zarqawi's men, closely linked to Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida network, is producing chemical weapons in Georgia and north Caucasus region of Russia.

Zarqawi is believed to have at least 150 potential terrorists based in Berlin, Bavaria and Baden-Wuerttemberg states, said the BND agents in the Cicero report.

Zarqawi and his group have claimed responsibility for a series of deadly attacks in Iraq since the 2003 fall of Saddam Hussein.
