Ansar al Islam Reveal New Anti-Personnel Landmine in Its Online Magazine

(Ansar al Islam )
The Iraqi insurgent group Ansar al Islam unveiled a new weapon now used by the group to make up for the inefficiency of the militant's IED in the face of the enhanced better-armored vehicles currently used by the U.S. Army in Iraq.

The new weapon, which the group called "Ansar 5," is an anti-personnel landmine, which the group unveiled in its second issue of its online magazine, al Ansar. The article gives a detailed description of the mine, its components, instructions on how to assemble it and some suggestions on how to use it.

The group's 30-page magazine also included articles on the latest developments in Iraq, descriptions of the group's of its operations, advice on how to lay the "perfect ambush," and an analysis of what might have caused the Swine Flu. The group concludes that the Swine Flu virus was most probably created by the U.S. to protect its pharmaceutical companies against the effects of the global economic downturn.
