UK identifies al-Qaida offshoot as key new threat

It won't be long before $ and boots get to Yemen above what is now in place.

LONDON Britain's top law enforcement official warned Wednesday that al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula has attempted attacks inside the U.K. and is posing an escalating threat in the wake of the attempted Yemen mail bomb strikes.

Home Secretary Theresa May said a suspect tied to the al-Qaida affiliate was arrested in Britain this year over a plot by the group to carry out an attack on the U.K.

She said al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula "now has a very substantial operational capability in Yemen," citing a suicide bomb attack on the British ambassador to Yemen in April and a rocket strike against a diplomatic convoy last month.

"But they have also shown the ability to project a threat far beyond the borders of Yemen," May told an audience of security officials, adding that police have been working to disrupt them.

She claimed that if the mail bomb uncovered last week had exploded aboard a passenger jet, it could have caused deaths on the scale of the 1988 terror attack on Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, which killed 259 people on board and 11 on the ground.

May said the capability of al-Qaida's core leadership was in decline, but threats from Yemen and Somalia were becoming increasingly serious.

"Action by our counterparts in Pakistan, by our allies in the U.S., by our own coalition forces in Afghanistan and of course by agencies here and elsewhere have all made al-Qaida weaker than at any time since 9/11," she said.

However, she said Britain believed that Yemen mail bombs plot had been hatched by al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, and acknowledged it involved sophisticated bomb-making.
