A new terror group called AZF claims to have planted bombs on French Railways. The AZF was threatening to detonate nine bombs planted in the rail network unless it was paid sums totaling $5.2 million. The group increased the ransom demand to $6.4 million in a March 8 letter to Chirac. Now in a new later recieved just a day after French officials found a bomb partially buried on a railway track, the AZF says that it is suspending its terror threats while it improves its ability to carry them out. The AZF is not the only new terror group making threats to France, another group called "Servants of Allah, the Powerful and Wise" sent two letters last weeks threatening to attack French interests in France and abroad.

Letters by Mysterious Group Announce Suspension of Bomb Threats While Improving Its Means
In two letters, addressed to President Jacques Chirac and Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy, the group, which calls itself AZF, said that "there are currently no bombs capable of functioning on the French rail network."

"With the experience gained these last weeks and now conscious of its technological, logistic and other weaknesses, AZF suspends its action for the time needed to remedy this," the one-page typed letter said
