ISLAMABAD: The Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) has included a Briton and an American in a slideshow of fighters killed in battle that also eulogises al Qaeda mastermind Osama bin Laden.

According to the US monitoring service SITE, the 12-minute, 56-second video was posted on few websites on February 6 and was prepared by Umar Studio, the media wing of the TTP.

It identifies the American by the name of Inaam and the Briton as Abbas, whom SITE said had been identified by the TTP in a prior video as Omar al Britani and who gave a speech in English.

No date or location was listed for their deaths. It showed a photograph of Abbas wearing a black turban and sporting a thick black beard. Inaam was shown smiling slightly

The video starts with a recitation of Quranic verses, before showing photographs of the slain fighters while they were alive or in death.

It also includes a photograph of bin Laden, who was shot dead by US Navy SEALs in Abbottabad on May 2, 2011.

"He faced a lot of hardships in this world, but he got martyrdom with the blessing of Allah," said TTP leader Hakimullah Mehsud of bin Laden.
