London, June 23: The Al Qaeda bombers are reportedly targeting the Wimbledon tennis championships in Britain.

According to Daily Express, British jihadis have been urged to bomb the Wimbledon tennis championships as the UK was warned it faces a new wave of terror attacks.

Muslim extremists fighting in Syria and Iraq have been told by the Al Qaeda to bring the battle to Britain.

Hundreds of thousands of visitors, including high-profile celebrities, politicians and members of the Royal Family will be present at the Wimbledon fortnight, which is set to begin tomorrow.

The sheer number of visitors attending the Wimbledon fortnight makes it a key target for the Muslim extremist groups.

The threat to bomb Wimbledon appears in the latest edition of Al Qaeda’s Inspire internet magazine, aimed at young British and American Muslims, the report said.
