Terror manual details custard-pie killingsAugust 15th, 2008 - 5:02 pm ICT by IANS
Sydney, Aug 15 (DPA) Glue inside a custard pie thrown in the face of a victim could effect a neat assassination, according to a terrorism manual produced as an exhibit at a court here in a case that could land terror suspect Belal Khazaal in jail. Another method recommended in the 102-page manual was enveloping the person to be killed in a strong plastic bag, the court was told Friday.
Khazaal, who titled his book Provisions on the Rules of Jihad, pleaded not guilty to knowingly making a document connected with terrorism. He also denied attempting to incite commission of a terrorist crime.
The document, posted on the Internet in 2003, lists 12 methods of assassination including car bombs, booby traps, shooting down planes and “hitting with a hammer.”
US President George W. Bush was on a list of assassination targets.
The doctored-custard-pie method was recommended because the victim would not know that the glue inside would block up his nose and mouth and cause suffocation.
