Muslim group threatens to assassinate Blair

A London-based fundamentalist group Al-Muhajiroun has given a call to British Muslims to 'assassinate' Prime Minister Tony Blair to avenge the bombing of Afghanistan.

Any Muslim, British or foreign, who 'wants to get rid of him (Blair)' would not be punished under Islamic law, but praised, Abdul Rehman Saleem, a spokesman for Al-Muhajiroun was quoted by the Times daily on Wednesday.

"Since Britain and America have started bombing the Muslims of Afghanistan, the government buildings here, the military installations, including 10 Downing Street, Prime Minister's office-cum-residence, become legitimate targets. That includes the Cabinet and it includes the Prime Minister as well," Saleem said.
