Increasing Operations Against Westerners in Saudi Arabia Praised in Online Magazine

The 12th issue of Al Battar Camp magazine which is published online by the Saudi group responsible for terrorist attacks in the Kingdom, commends the increasing operations against Westerners in Saudi Arabia. The magazine mentions the attack against a BBC team, in which a cameraman was killed and a correspondent injured. It admits that the two were not responsible for attacks on "the mujaheddin," but justifies the attack by saying that it's considered a big blow for the Saudi and British governments. The magazine also contains a new article allegedly written by the number one suspect on the Saudi most wanted list, Abdul Aziz Al Muqrin, about fighting inside cities. It also includes an article allegedly written by al Qaeda leader Seif Al Adl about how to search locations secretly for information and to plant bugging devices. (ABCNEWS Investigative Unit)
