Al-Libi, the operational chief of al-Qaida before his detention, allegedly knew the location of a nuclear bomb in Europe that would be detonated if bin Laden were killed or captured.
He had a “long term association” with bin Laden and ran al-Qaida operations in Iraq, according to US Defence Department files.
Sharif al-Masri, an Egyptian captured in 2004, claimed Al-Libi had said the nuclear bomb’s operatives “would be Europeans of Arab or Asian descent”.

This point has been discussed already in other threads, and my point remains the same.. I suspect that if they really had a nuke in Europe they'd detonate it .. period, they wouldn't threaten.. to me that sounds more like an idle threat saying "Don't kill or capture him or else!" .. the fact is, they are opportunists and if they managed to smuggle a nuke into the UK they'd set it off as soon as they could before it got discovered and disarmed .. that'd be the ultimate terror act and they wouldn't just sit on it until Osama got killed or captured ..
Now that he has been killed apparently, they may very well put more weight on that goal .. but I seriously think that if they could have by now, they would have..

But if you read the document, they couldn't move it as they didn't have any operatives in the country (this was in 2003).
