Baghdad, Iraq (AHN) - Reports are surfacing Saturday morning that intelligence in Iraq had uncovered plans that include major attacks across Europe.

"Osama Bin Laden has asked the head of Al Qaida in Iraq, Al Zarqawi, to organize an attack in Europe, more devastating than that of Sept. 11, 2001," Iraqi Deputy Foreign Minister Hamid Al Bayati tells Italian daily Il Messaggero.

Al-Qaeda ring leader, Abu Mussib Al Zarqawi, has reportedly moved operatives to Europe for a series of attacks against NATO states, the report says.

Sources say the strikes are meant to pressure members of the U.S.-led coalition to leave Iraq.

Al Bayati told the Italian newspaper that Al Zarqawi has established a network throughout Europe for imminent strikes. Bayati says Italy is a leading target of the Al Qaida network.
