Al-Qaeda leader speaks from grave2012-06-13 14:25
The second person in the al-Qaeda, Abu Yahya al-Libi, announced killed by the U.S. authorities last week, has delivered a video message. The video was posted on an Islamist website. Al-Libi has called on radical Islamists to support the members of the armed forces who had unleashed the war against the government of Syria. "We call on our brothers in Iran, Jordan and Turkey to come to the aid of his brothers (in Syria)", al-Libi stated.
According to the Reuters, it was impossible to learn when the video message of the leader of the Islamists was made.
June 4, a source of the Associated Press reported that al-Libi was killed as a result of the U.S. unmanned aerial vehicle in northern Pakistan. Later, the White House spokesperson Jay Carney confirmed the death of the terrorist leader. Carney called his elimination "a severe blow" to international terrorism, RIA Novosti reported.
Carney named al-Libi "the main manager" of al-Qaeda, who had a great experience. The White House also expressed doubt that anyone could replace al-Libi in al-Qaeda. "There is no obvious successor who would cover the scope of his responsibilities", the Reuters cited Carney's words.
Earlier, the death of the second person of al-Qaeda was also confirmed by one of the leaders of Pakistani Taliban, who had named elimination of al-Libi "a great loss".
"After Dr. Sahib (the leader of al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri), he (al-Libi) was the main leader of the group", the Reuters led the words of one of the leaders of the Pakistani Taliban, whose name was not reported.
The spiritual leader of the terrorists Abu Yahya al-Libi (real name - Mohammed Hassan Qaid) is also known for the fact that in 2005 he had escaped from the U.S. custody in Afghanistan. Reports of his death had been received via the international media, but were not confirmed.
After the elimination of the leader of al-Qaeda Osama bin Laden in May last year al-Libi, the Libyan by birth, became the "number two" in the hierarchy of the terrorist group. He was responsible for coordinating the actions of militants in Pakistan's tribal areas bordering with Afghanistan. FBI offered a million dollars to anyone who would have provided information about his whereabouts, the ITAR-TASS reported.
