Jews, Americans Top Targets in al-Qaeda Document

(Reuters) A strategy paper in the latest issue of a guerrilla warfare manual posted on a website sympathetic to al-Qaeda lists Jews, Americans, and Britons as main targets.

U.S. and Israeli Jews, followed by French and British Jews, were top human targets. Chief targets among Christians were Americans and Britons, followed by Spaniards, Australians, Canadians, and Italians. Entitled "Targets Inside Cities," the paper was signed by Abdulaziz al-Muqrin, whom Western intelligence agencies consider the leading al-Qaeda propagandist and financier in Saudi Arabia.
