The Osama bin Laden-led terrorist organisation Al Qaeda has again promised to carry out new acts of terror in the United States and the United Kingdom as revenge for their attacks on Afghanistan. The Al Qaeda statement by spokesman Suleiman Abu Geis was televised Sunday night by Qatar's al-Gezira TV channel. Abu Geis voiced the threat, warning Americans and Britons "particularly Muslims, children and all those opposing the policy conducted by the United States not to fly aircraft and not to live in high rises." He also assured that Al Qaeda members will fight "side-by-side" with the Taliban against "invaders." He said that Americans "do not have enough bombs to suppress jihad."
