LONDON — The group linked to al-Qaeda which carried ou the Madrid massacre has threatened to carry out more attacks across Europe, it was reported Friday.

A purported statement from an Al Qaeda-linked group vowed to carry out attacks in Europe after the expiry of a three-month truce offered by Osama bin Laden in April, the London-based Asharq al-Awsat newspaper reported.

Al Qaeda leader bin Laden, in an audio tape on April 15, extended a truce to Europeans if they withdrew troops from Muslim nations and said the offer would last three months.

“To the European people… you only have a few more days to accept bin Laden’s truce or you will only have yourselves to blame,” said the statement.

It was  purported to be from Abu Hafs al-Masri Brigades, which claimed responsibility for the March 11 train bombings in Spain.

The bombings killed 192 people in all and left 1,430 people injured.
