An Omen? Al Qaeda Terrorist Camp Hit By Plague

Could it be that a certain higher power has joined the war against terror? According to the British newspaper The Sun, some 40 Al Qaeda terrorists have died after a plague hit the terrorist camps:

At least 40 al-Qaeda fanatics died horribly after being struck down with the disease that devastated Europe in the Middle Ages.

The killer bug, also known as the plague, swept through insurgents training at a forest camp in Algeria, North Africa. It came to light when security forces found a body by a roadside.

The victim was a terrorist in AQLIM (al-Qaeda in the Land of the Islamic Maghreb), the largest and most powerful al-Qaeda group outside the Middle East.

It trains Muslim fighters to kill British and US troops.

Now al-Qaeda chiefs fear the plague has been passed to other terror cells — or Taliban fighters in Afghanistan.

While The Sun isn’t exactly a sedate, low key news source, the story doe make some sense: terrorist camps are unlikely to be in the lap of luxury, and the areas could be prone to disease:

One security source said: “This is the deadliest weapon yet in the war against terror. Most of the terrorists do not have the basic medical supplies needed to treat the disease.

“It spreads quickly and kills within hours. This will be really worrying al-Qaeda.”

Black Death comes in various forms.

An episode of “House” in the making?
