Al-Qaeda deputy calls for more attacks

from Agence France-Presse (AFP)

Osama bin Laden's right-hand man Ayman al-Zawahiri has issued a vehement video calling for attacks on Western interests worldwide and regime change in Egypt and Saudi Arabia. "The struggle against the corrupt regimes and the corruptors is in two phases ... In the short term, one must take aim at the interests of the Crusaders and Jews,'' Zawahiri said in the 95-minute video from Al-Qaeda's As-Sahab Media. "All those who have attacked the (Islamic) nation must pay the price, in our countries and theirs, in Iraq, in Afghanistan, in Palestine and in Somalia, but above all where one can strike a blow against their interests,'' he said.
