The leader of Al-Qaeda has urged jihadists throughout the world to kidnap westerners – just days after two men tried to bundle an RAF serviceman into a van at knifepoint.

Speaking in Arabic, Egyptian doctor Ayman Al-Zawahiri released a video last night urging terrorists to abduct westerners and use them as bargaining chips to free jailed militants.

The terror chief’s chilling words came just after two men tried to grab a serviceman, aged in his 20s, while he was out jogging near RAF Marham in Norfolk on Thursday.

Assistant Chief Constable Nick Dean told a press conference: “Our main line if investigation is that this is being treated as an attempted abduction.

“The motivation of this incident remains unclear, we are unable at this moment to discount terrorism.”

Tornado fighter bombers are bombing Islamic State forces in Syria and Iraq and terror experts fear the motive for the attack may have been revenge for Britain’s involvement.

  1. Pass the word to Ducktor Al-Zawahiri that if he tries that in my town we will feed him — with 45 caliber lead. He is a terrorist though our current pseudo president does not use that appellation for anybody. A rose is a rose – a terrorist is a terrorist and the both need fertilizer, in his case on his grave. I fought for freedom in North and South Korea and Vietnam and unfortunately only Korean freedom was maintained in South Korea and not at all in Vietnam. But I will fight for freedom in the U.S. if necessary and I say – “Death to the Muslim invaders!” Freedom isn’t free but I and my friends will pay whatever price is necessary! Semper Fidelis
