    British extremist 'behind attack on CIA base in Afghanistan' ​

    A video released by the Pakistan Taliban claims that a British extremist was one of the masterminds behind a devastating suicide attack on a CIA base in Afghanistan. ​

    "Umar the British martyr" is identified in the 30-minute propaganda film, which pays tribute to extremists who have given their lives in attacks on Western or Pakistani forces.

    It claims the Briton was a co-conspirator in an attack carried out by a Jordanian triple agent, Abu Dujana, on a US base in Khost, Afghanistan, three years ago.

    He had been sent by the CIA and the Jordanian intelligence service to infiltrate al-Qaeda in Pakistan's tribal region but detonated a vest crammed with explosives when he arrived at Camp Chapman for a debriefing, killing the station chief, Jennifer Matthews, six other American personnel and his Jordanian handler.

    The video, obtained by The Sunday Times(£), is the first time a Briton has been named in connection with the attack.

    "Umar, with his accomplice Amir Hakimullah, entirely planned the suicide attack which Dr Abu Dujana undertook against the American CIA station in Khost," says an Urdu voice-over set to images of Umar's face.
