Al-Qaeda's Afghan head 'named'

Mustafa Abu al-Yazid says in videotape support for al-Qaeda growing in Afghanistan.

    Al-Yazid promised "defeat, expulsion and failure"
    to those opposing al-Qaeda in Afghanistan


    Al-Yazid said that attacks against "the Americans, Nato and the treasonous government" were increasing and promised "defeat, expulsion and failure for the enemy crusaders and their apostate helpers".
     
    He also pledged allegiance to Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda leader, and Ayman al-Zawahiri, bin Laden's deputy.
     
    He said: "God bless our two emirs, Sheikh Osama [bin Laden] and Sheikh Ayman [al-Zawahiri] ... May both sheikhs, Osama and Ayman, remain a thorn in the side of [George] Bush."
