Opening a new IE window from a url link in a pdf document

I am generating a pdf using xsl fo. The pdf has a url link which opens an
external website say like yahoo.com. I have tried to implement this through
the following line of code: 

<fo:basic-link   external-destination="url('www.yahoo.com')"
show-destination= "new"  text-decoration="underline"

However when I click this link, the yahoo page opens in an already open IE
window instead of launching a new IE window. So say for example I already
have a google page open and I click on the link the yahoo page opens in the
google page window instead of opening in a new browser. 
Is there any way to make it open a new window. 
I have tried changing external-destination="url('www.yahoo.com#')" , however
this opens a blank window. 

Any help in this matter would be most appreciated.
