AN al-Qaeda warlord outlined a plan to blitz Britain in an email sent to an undercover Sun investigator. Yemen-based Anwar al-Awlaki - tipped as Osama Bin Laden's successor - urged a Mumbai-style massacre after being duped by a Sun sting.
He said in an email: "The options that you have for operations could be pipe bombs, assassinations or using a firearm at a location crowded with enemies."
The last suggestion is a clear reference to the Mumbai massacre in which 164 people were killed when terrorist gunmen went on the rampage in the Indian city in 2008.
The Sun contacted warlord Awlaki - widely tipped to become al-Qaeda's global leader following the killing of Osama Bin Laden - in an email sting.
