WASHINGTON: Al Qaeda has released a two-part 100-minute video apparently produced after the death of Osama bin Laden. It calls for individual acts of ‘jihad’ on ‘enemy soil’, a US-based monitoring service said on Friday. This is the first footage released after Osama’s death. Among the several speakers are Ayman al Zawahiri, and American-born Adam Gadahn, who says that Muslims living in the West are “perfectly placed to play an important and decisive part in the jihad against the Zionists and Crusaders”, according to a transcript of the first video released by the SITE Monitoring Service.
