Anwar al-Awlaki calls for more terror attacks on West

Radical Yemeni cleric Anwar al-Awlaki has re-emerged with a video calling for more terror attacks on the West.



London: Radical Yemeni cleric Anwar al-Awlaki has re-emerged with a video calling for more terror attacks on the West.

According to the Daily Mail, Islamic websites with known ties to al Qaeda have announced the planned release of the video featuring Al-Awlaki.

US officials claim that Al-Awlaki is playing an active role in organising and inspiring specific terror plots on US targets.

Al-Awlaki was in the US before the September 11 attacks, and is believed to have preached to some of the hijackers.

After the attacks, Al-Awlaki went to Yemen were he became increasingly radicalised calling for bombings and killings of non-Muslims.

Earlier, in April, US President Barack Obama had approved the targeted killing of Al-Awlaki through a series of drone attacks.

However, the new video proves that the drone attacks have proved unsuccessful.
