Report: Lashkar-e-Taiba Expanding in Europe and USA

The Pakistani terrorist group linked to Al-Qaeda called Lashkar-e-Taiba is expanding its operations in Europe and the U.S., according to information in aNew York Times article pointed out by the Jihad Watch blog.

Lashkar-e-Taiba is most known for carrying out 10 simultaneous attacks in Mumbai, India on November 26, 2008 that killed 164 people. The attackers arrived using speedboats and carried out various shootings and bombings on “soft” targets including hotels, a restaurant and a Jewish community center.

According to the report, Lashkar-e-Taiba is no longer just targeting India but is fighting U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan and wants to carry out attacks in Europe and the United States.  It is also increasing its fundraising in Germany and the United Kingdom. The group has previously pledged to “plant a flag” in Tel Aviv and Washington, D.C.
