Italy, once again is the target of threats from Abu Hafs al-Masri Brigades an Al-Qaeda affiliated group. They said in a signed statement that Italy
has 15 days to withdraw troops from Iraq, and said "We had already sent you an earlier message asking you to withdraw from Iraq as soon as possible
but have not seen anything yet ... and this is why the language of blood is on its way to you." Italy has been warned numerous times in the past
few weeks, but has so far refused to be swayed by the threats.
An unknown group claiming links to al Qaeda gives Italy a 15-day deadline to pull its troops out of Iraq or face attacks, in a statement sent to the
London-based al-Quds al-Arabi newspaper Sunday.
"We are mobilizing our cells everywhere in Rome and other Italian cities and we give (Italian Prime Minister Silvio) Berlusconi 15 days to withdraw
from Iraq, said the statement signed by Abu Hafs al-Masri Brigades -- al Qaeda Organization.

The threats appear to be picking up a fever pitch with New York, Australia, and Italy recently being targets. Al-Qaeda also took credit for the
Pakistan bombing which nearly killed the person President Musharraf had selected to become the next Prime minister.
