CHILLING; AL-QAEDA VOW REVENGE FOR DEATH OF MONSTER 'The Blood of Holy Warrior Sheikh Osama Bin Laden Will Not Be Wasted. Soon America's Happiness Will Turn to Sadness and Their Blood Will Mingle with Tears'


Byline: Chris Hughes

AL-QAEDA yesterday threatened America and its allies with bloody revenge for the killing of Osama Bin Laden.

In a chilling statement posted online, "the general leadership of al-Qaeda" said: "Soon, God willing, their happiness will turn to sadness.

"Their blood will be mingled with their tears.

"The blood of the holy warrior sheikh, Osama bin Laden, God bless him, is precious to us and all Muslims and will not go in vain."

As the fanatics ranted and raved, new details suggested that the killing of Bin Laden had robbed al-Qaeda of much more than a figurehead.

The US had no plans last night to issue an official terror alert. But transport officials have been warned to be vigilant, and the FBI and the Homeland Security department have informed police forces across the country.

Other documents found in the raid have revealed that Bin Laden wanted to commit mass murder against civilians in major US cities, striking on significant dates such as July 4, New Year's Day and September 11 itself.

Curse Again, there was nothing to suggest his plans had been put into action.

Security services in the US, Britain and Europe are on high alert for possible attacks to avenge Bin Laden's death.

European agents monitoring phone and internet services have seen an increase in "chatter" about small-scale plots in recent days, but no evidence that any attacks are imminent.

Conspiracy theorists have been trying to cast doubt on Bin Laden's death since President Obama revealed on Monday that US Navy SEALs had gunned him down.

They had the rug pulled from under them yesterday by al-Qaeda's own leadership, who admitted that "Sheikh Osama was killed" in the raid on his compound in the town of Abbottabad.

The statement, titled You Lived As A Good Man, You Died As A Martyr, was posted on militant websites often used by al-Qaeda. …
