A new video posted on extremist websites linked to Al Qaeda shows six masked assassins clad head to toe in black ninja-like outfits, and getting trained in firing pistols.
The footage - recorded at a camp on the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan - shows the terrorists going through a series of shooting drills, The Sun reported.
The extremists are shown adopting the classic firing pose - pistols held in both hands with arms outstretched.
They then drop to a crouch to gun down a target with bullets.
The ninja terrorists are also seen firing AK-47 rifles, first from the shoulder, then the waist, then while kneeling, and finally sitting and lying on the ground.
Two of the black-clad militants are shown with a heavy machine gun. Other terrorists are seen rehearsing drive-by shootings from a pick-up truck and motorbike.
Their arsenal also includes rocket-propelled grenade launchers, the daily said.
A similar Al Qaeda-linked extremist website has 66,000 registered users.
