Al Qaeda released Sunday on militant Web sites a new video eulogy of its top Afghanistan strategist Abu Laith al-Libi, showing his corpse for the first time.
Two new tapes have been released to commemorate the death of the Al Qaeda commander, who was killed by a CIA Predator drone attack in Afghanistan in late January. The first tape is the second part of Zawahiri's Abu Laith eulogy tape. The first part was released last week.
Additionally, Al Qaeda leader Abu Yahya al-Libi has also released a tape claiming to show pictures of dead commander. The video allegedly shows Abu Yahya paying respects as proof that hes really dead and to rally radical base.
"One of the hardest aspects of what we have witnessed in the field of jihad ... is saying goodbye to loved ones and the absence of companions," eulogized fellow Al Qaeda militant Abu Yahya al-Libi on the video, in front of an image of him leaning over Abu Laith's battered corpse.
The video message carried the logo of al-Sahab, Al Qaeda's media wing.
Al Qaeda announced Abu Laith al-Libi's death by a U.S. airstrike on a Pakistani village near the Afghan border late in January.
