Imminent attack played down
font size    

US Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff yesterday played down a report Al-Qaida was planning a big attack on the United States, saying there was no credible information about an imminent threat.

"We do not currently have any specific threat information that is credible about a particular attack on the United States," Chertoff told Fox News.

ABC News, quoting a senior US official, said on Sunday a secret law enforcement report prepared for the Department of Homeland Security warned that Al-Qaida planned to carry out a "spectacular" attack this summer.

"Al-Qaida and its affiliates do intend to carry out further attacks against the United States and the West," Chertoff said.

"We also know that they tend to want to do attacks that are spectacular or high-profile, so it's not surprising to have analysts comment on the fact that this kind of an attack is a very definite possibility," he said.

"But again I want to say that's more general analysis that is not based on a specific piece of information about a particular attack."
