New Qaeda release expected from No. 2 Zawahiri

Tue 3 Jun 2008, WASHINGTON (Reuters)

Al Qaeda's second-in-command Ayman al-Zawahiri is expected to issue a new statement calling for an end to Israel's economic blockade of the Gaza Strip, U.S.-based Internet monitors said on Tuesday.
The statement was produced by al Qaeda's media arm, as-Sahab, and an announcement of its impending release was posted to Islamist Web forums, the SITE Intelligence Group said. Monitor IntelCenter said the audio-video release was expected within 72 hours.
