Washington, Feb.16 (ANI): The Yemeni Al Qaeda is actively recruiting English-speaking individuals, intelligence officials told Fox News on Monday.

They said investigators are looking for people who are more like Americans, having been born in the United States or Canada.

"Anyone who can fit in and not attract suspicion" is desirable to the terror network right now, said one official.

An investigative source also said that among those attracting attention by the intelligence community are women recruits.

The next wave of terrorists may include Western women, possibly Canadian, with forged documents, they said.

The use of women would be seen an evolution in Al Qaeda's strategy from the failed Christmas Day attack by accused "underpants bomber" Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, Fox News reported. (ANI)
