Al-Qaeda was plotting to carry out audacious terror attacks in Europe similar to 26/11 Mumbai strikes, a “treasure trove” of documents embedded inside a porn movie seized from a terrorist returning from Pakistan has revealed.

The al-Qaeda plots were found inside encoded a movie stored in a digital disk, after police arrested 22-year-old Austrian Maqsood Lodin in Berlin last year.

He had returned from Pakistan via Budapest, Hungary, and then travelled overland to Germany, CNN reported. The interrogators found the digital storage device and memory cards hidden in his underpants. Inside them was a pornographic video called Kick Ass and a file marked Sexy Tanja.

Over 100 al-Qaeda documents that included an inside track on some of the terror group’s most audacious plots and a road map for future operations were found.
