Geostrategy-direct.com is reporting that Al-Qaeda may have acquired a significant quantity of nuclear and biologic materials.
The newspaper Wprost reported April 11 that Britain’s MI-6 intelligence service provided the intelligence on the Al Qaida effort.

The report raises new worries that the terrorist group may attempt to launch a weapons of mass destruction attack on a European city such as Warsaw or London.

The report said Al Qaida terrorists recently held a “summit” near the Polish-Ukrainian border with Chechen Islamists.

According to the report, the effort to acquire nuclear or biological materials was organized by Semen Mogilevich, considered a major Russian organized crime figure and head of the Solntsevo crime group. The group is believed to have previously provided weapons and arms.

Three members of the Solntsevo gang were arrested on their way to Munich with 17 ounces of smuggled plutonium, the report said.
