Documents detailing a plot to attack Jewish neighborhoods in London were found on the body of an African leader of al-Qaida.

The plans, which included plots for a kidnapping and attacks on Eton College and the Ritz and Dorchester hotels in London, were found on the body of Fazul Abdullah Mohammed, 38, who was shot last year by Somali forces as he tried to crash through a government checkpoint, the Toronto Star reported Wednesday.

According to the plans, the terrorists would strike London’s Stamford Hill and Golders Green neighborhoods, which are populated with “tens of thousands of Jews crammed in a small area,” the Star reported.

“Our objectives are to strike London with low-cost operations that would cause a heavy blow amongst the hierarchy and Jewish communities,” it says in the document, titled “International Operations.”

“These attacks must be backed with a carefully planned media campaign to show why we chose our targets to refute hypocrites, clear doubts amongst Muslims and also inspire Muslim youth to copy.”

Fazul was indicted in the United States for the 1998 US Embassy bombings in Tanzania and Kenya that left 224 dead.

A close ally of Osama bin Laden, Fazul was killed just six weeks after the al-Qaida founder.
