There is at least one Canadian among the Islamic militants who took 132 foreign hostages at a gas plant in Algeria this week, according to a Mauritanian news agency.
The information comes from Agence Nouakchott d’Information, which quoted an unnamed source within the al-Mua'qi'oon Biddam.
Also known as "Those Who Sign with Blood," al-Mua'qi'oon Biddam is the new al-Qaeda affiliate that has claimed responsibility for the attack on the In Amenas complex in the Sahara desert.Those Who Sign with Blood--pretty darn catchy, no? A few other suggestions for Al Qaeda affiliate names:
- Those Who Drink your Blood;
- Those Who Wash with Blood;
- Those Who Splatter Blood;
- Those Who Sing With Blood; and my personal fave,
- Dances With Blood
