LONDON - France's ban on the Muslim full face veil has triggered calls on online terror forums for armed retaliation against the country, a US-based terrorism monitoring service said on Wednesday.

Some contributors to the messages seen on the password-protected, invitation-only terror chat rooms this week called on al Qaida's North Africa arm to "deter" France by staging armed attacks, the SITE service said.

The anonymous threats, presented by the sites as comments by individuals, carry none of the weight of published audio or video statements by Osama bin Laden's al Qaida or similar established armed groups seeking to attack Western targets.
