Information is emerging from Interpol that the terrorist threat in Europe is increasing as Al Qaeda has fractured, with splinter organisations appearing.

The reason for the split is due to an apparent argument over the spelling of Al Qaeda. The original organisation has lost members who believe it should be spelled Al Qaida, whilst another group has split off under the name Al Qa'ida, asserting that the apostrophe is very important. The latest two groups to emerge have called themselves Al Kaida, dropping the 'Q' completely and Al Quaeda, believing that a 'Q' should always be followed by a 'U'.

Whilst Interpol believe the fracture of the parent terrorist group will mean an escalation of violence across Europe; MI5, the British secret service organisation, have said that it will result in less violence.

"There will be infighting," said John Smith (as she prefers to be known, for security reasons), "We've seen it before when Christians split into their various groups. When the Protestants formed, instead of fighting Taoists and Rastafarians, the Catholics fought the Protestants instead."

In his latest video Bin Laden condemned the fracturing of the organisation, and wanted to welcome the splinter groups back into the original group, asking "What's in a name?"
