Al Qaeda looking for WMD

world Updated: Jul 27, 2010 23:29 IST

An alarming Wikileak report said that Al Qaeda is claimed to be mixed up in a plan to manufacture chemical weapons payloads for rocket-propelled grenades that are "intended to spread a poisonous gas on impact".

Dr Mohammad Hamzah Ahmadzai, identified in the logs as the scientist behind the plan, is said by the source to be interested in acquiring uranium for unspecified explosive purposes. Uranium was available from an unidentified factory in Lahore at a cost of $538 for 10g, but Hamzah found the price too high and is seeking alternative means to create large explosions.
