Al-Qaeda has issued a new edition of its glossy magazine, Inspire, where they explain how to derail a train.
Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has released the 17th edition of its Inspire magazine, in which the group calls on supporters to strike trains in the US and Europe.
The editors of Inspire say that followers can choose from one of three modes of attack. They can directly target the train from 'either inside or from outside,' or target 'the rail itself so as to derail the train,' or assault train stations, which 'are always crowded and cause major interruption towards the transportation system.'
The latest issue of Inspire focuses mainly on the second means of attack, providing readers with step-by-step instructions for building a train derailment device. An 18-page guide to building a derail tool is included in the 97-page electronic magazine and signed by the 'AQ Chef,' a name that has been attached to previous AQAP ideas, such as a how-to guide for building bombs that was published in Inspire years ago. The 'AQ Chef claims that the magazine’s “train derail” design is similar to the ‘industrial' tool 'used by the track management staff when they need to derail a train with faulty breaks.
