WASHINGTON — Al-Qaeda's English-language magazine 'Inspire' has reappeared months after its leaders died in a U.S. missile strike, offering detailed advice on how to start huge forest fires in America with timed explosives and how to build remote-controlled bombs.
Two new issues of the magazine have surfaced on jihadi forums for the first time since radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and chief Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula propagandist Samir Khan were killed in U.S. drone attacks over Yemen on Sept. 30, 2011.
The magazines eulogize Awlaki and Khan as the 'spirit' and the 'tongue' of 'Inspire' respectively, but deny that their deaths will stop the magazine or jihad, ABC News reports.
One of the issues contains an article 'It Is of Your Freedom to Ignite a Firebomb,' which gives detailed instructions on how to ignite an 'ember bomb' in a U.S. forest.
It suggested that the western state of Montana, with its rapid population growth in wooded areas, was a particularly best place to set huge forest fires.
"In America, there are more houses built in the [countryside] than in the cities. It is difficult to choose a better place [than] in the valleys of Montana," said the signed by 'The AQ Chef'.
According to the report, another issue has an eight-page article on how to construct remote-controlled explosives, with a laundry list of parts and ingredients and photos showing proper assembly.
