Al-Qa'ida 'make a bomb in mom's kitchen' guide

Richard Spencer in Dubai

AL-QA'IDA has opened a new front in its war on the West, launching its own English-language internet newspaper, which features articles such as "Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom".

Its tag-line is "Inspire the Believers" and its first front page features a quotation by the Yemeni-American cleric, Anwar al-Awlaki: "May our souls be sacrificed for you."

The full magazine is not yet online, but the contents page offers a message from Osama bin Laden. The magazine claims to be published by al-Qa'ida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). Other articles include a question-and-answer session with the leader of AQAP, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, also known by his nom de guerre, Abu Basir, and a piece offering a detailed bomb-making manual.
