I killed US troops, British al-Qaeda gunman claims
By Daniel McGrory



A MASKED British gunman claiming to be fighting with al-Qaeda in Afghanistan appeared on an Arabic satellite channel yesterday describing how he killed a team of US Special Forces.
His claim came just hours after Tony Blair warned that Britons who boast about supporting terror groups like al-Qaeda or attend their training camps face immediate arrest if they attempt to return home.



This broadcast, aired on the al-Aribiya channel, is seen as timely propaganda coming a day after after al-Qaeda's second in command, Ayman al-Zawahiri, threatened more terror attacks in London.
