Arab expert dismisses Seoul terrorism threat

Oct 14,2004
An Arab specialist has dismissed as a prank a recent terrorist threat posted on an Arabic Web site against South Korea.
Mustafa Al-said, a professor of politics at Egypt’s Cairo University, said that the message’s format and tone differed greatly from those written by actual terrorist groups. He cited an incorrect Islamic calendar date as proof; the grammar was also flawed, the professor said. “I think a child or a [non-Arab] wrote the message,” he added.
Earlier this week, a group calling itself “The Martyr Hammoud Al-Masri Battalion” claimed to be the Southeast Asian branch of Al Qaeda. It threatened, over the Internet, to attack South Korean troops in Iraq and targets in Seoul ― where it said it had a cell.
