Intel on Al Qaida strike in Bucharest rattled NATO summit planners
NATO intelligence services were working overtime amid a threat of an attack on Western leaders in Bucharest. The latest intelligence told of an Al Qaida-aligned strike that could be aided by Iran and target President Bush and French President Sarkozy. Romania has been a gamble for a NATO summit, which began on April 2. The alliance has been alarmed by the increasing use of the Balkans as a safe haven for groups aligned with Al Qaida and Hizbullah. Intelligence sources said NATO has detected threats from Albania, Bosnia and Kosovo and regards these areas as launching pads for major attacks against the West.
