    WASHINGTON: Hundreds of internal al-Qaida documents embedded inside a pornographic movie on a memory disk have revealed plots of carrying out attacks in Europe similar to the November 2008 Mumbai attacks.

    Terrorist training manuals in PDF format in German, English and Arabic were among the documents found, according to intelligence sources cited by CNN, which said it had obtained details of the documents.

    The German newspaper Die Zeit was the first to report on the discovery of the documents by German cryptologists inside the memory disk found on a suspected al-Qaida operative arrested in Berlin last year, it said.

    Interrogators questioning a 22-year-old Austrian named Maqsood Lodin, who had recently returned from Pakistan via Budapest, Hungary, and then travelled overland to Germany were surprised to find a digital storage device and memory cards hidden in his underpants.

    Buried inside them was a pornographic video called Kick Ass and a file marked Sexy Tanja.

    Several weeks later, German investigators discovered encoded inside the actual video a treasure trove of intelligence - more than 100 al-Qaida documents.

    One document called Future Works appears to have been the product of discussions to find new targets and methods of attack, CNN said. German investigators believe it was written in 2009 -- and that it remains the template for al-Qaida's plans.

    A year after the document was written, European intelligence agencies were scrambling to investigate a Mumbai style plot involving German and other European militants which sparked an unprecedented US state department travel warning for Americans in Europe.

    "I think it is plausible to think that the Future Works document is part of that particular project," investigative journalist Yassin Musharbash, a reporter with the German newspaper Die Zeit, who was the first to report on the documents, was quoted as saying.

    "The document delivers very clearly the notion that al-Qaida knows it is being followed very closely," Musharbash told CNN.

    While Future Works does not include dates or places, nor specific plans, it appears to be a brainstorming exercise to seize the initiative-and reinstate al-Qaida on front pages around the world, it said.

    Seems Al Qaeda was planning Mumbai style attacks across Europe as per encrypted plans found in a pornographic movie found on 22-year-old Austrian named Maqsood Lodin travelling to Germany from Pakistan.
