Al-Qaeda bid for Brit girl bombers

Extremist websites lure angels of death, MPs warn

Bomb belt ... Palestinian woman

AL-QAEDA is trying to recruit WOMEN to carry out suicide bombings in the UK, MPs warn today.

It is using extremist websites to radicalise the angels of death, says their chilling report.
The Commons home affairs committee says it has heard evidence the terror group is "specifically launching and targeting women for violent acts".
It is already a deadly tactic in the Middle East, where growing numbers of Palestinian women are volunteering for suicide missions against Israel. The MPs' report comes days after four Islamic extremists admitted plotting to bomb the London Stock Exchange.

Woolwich Crown Court heard how the gang — who also had London mayor Boris Johnson on a hit list — had been brainwashed by the twisted ideology of Anwar al-Awlaki, an al-Qaeda leader until the US killed him in Yemen last year.
His attempts to recruit UK Muslims were exposed by The Sun. Last night the committee chairman, Labour's Keith Vaz, said the gang's admissions show "we cannot let our vigilance slip".
Teachings ... al-Awlaki
He added: "More resources need to be directed to these threats and to preventing radicalisation through the internet and in private spaces.
"These are the fertile breeding grounds for terrorism."
The MPs' report says big internet firms must do more to shut websites that encourage violent extremism.
Home Secretary Theresa May has already launched a crackdown on recruiting websites used by extremists, as a purge on fanatics in mosques and colleges has resulted in the web being increasingly used to brainwash supporters.
For their report, the Association of Chief Police Officers' Sir Norman Bettison told MPs the internet "seems to feature in most, if not all, of the routes of radicalisation".
MPs grilled hate preacher Abu Hamza inside Belmarsh Prison for their inquiry.
The report says he blames British foreign policy and guilt for radicalising Muslims.
The Home Office said last night: "We are working closely with the police and internet service providers to take hate off the web."
