A new statement from the Al-Qaeda linked terrorist group, repeated threats to european countries with forces in Iraq, but denied issuing the threat to
Italy that it had 15 days to leave Iraq. Identifying what threat is real and what is fake is becoming difficult in regards to this group.
CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - A group claiming to represent al-Qaida in Europe repeated threats against Britain, Italy, Bulgaria and other countries with
forces in Iraq in a Web statement Tuesday.
But the statement denied that the group, calling itself Abu Hafs al-Masri Brigade Europe, had demanded that Italy withdraw its troops from Iraq within
15 days. The ultimatum, also signed Hafs al-Masri Brigade, was posted on the Web on Sunday.

So far only threats and nothing to back it up, while these conflicting threats are taken seriously, one has to wonder if the terrorists are using the
media to keep the threatened countries on a razor's edge and waiting until security begins to ease before making an attack.
