In a taped interview with an Arabic news paper Osama Bin Laden takes responsibility for the Kleen Power plant explosion in Connecticut. Bin Laden says he has over 25 thousand operatives across the entire worlds who are committing secret acts of terrorism.
Muhammad Basheer bin Sa'oud al-Ramaly al-Shammari who interviewed Bin Laden said Bin Laden admitted to him that his operatives in Connecticut who blew up the 620-megawatt gas-fired power plant paid an employee of the power plant two million dollars to make the explosion look like an accident.
Muhammad Basheer bin Sa'oud al-Ramaly al-Shammari said the reason behind the carefully orchestrated deception was to protect the identity of the operatives who are needed to set up other clandestine terrorist acts in different locations.
Two people were killed in Sunday's explosion around 11:30 a.m. at the Connecticut power plant, the district attorney said. The District attorney expects the number of dead to be greater as the search continues for more dead.
Hundreds of police, fire fighters and emergency personal have responded to the terrorist act.
The dead and the injured are being transferred to Middlesex Hospital in Middletown which is located a few miles from Hartford, Connecticut.
People miles away reported hearing a terrifying blast that shook their homes.
"It felt like the house was shaking, it was really big", said Peter Moore. Moore lives 10 miles away in Durham. Moore explains that he thought it was a traffic accident near his street or his house was falling apart.
Another resident named Lynn Townsend said she went outside after the explosion and saw a very big, bright orange flame between the plant's two smokestacks.
The general manager of the plant named Gordon Holk said he wasn't sure how Bin Laden managed to blow up the power plant, "It's a complete mystery" said Holk.
The police officials in Middletown said there were mass casualties but had no further details as the investigation carries on.
