Al Qaeda says to release Osama audio tape soon

Dubai: Al Qaeda said it would soon release an audio tape from Osama bin Laden, made a week before he was killed by US forces, the group said in a statement confirming his death released on Islamist forums Friday.

"Before the sheikh passed from this world and before he could share with the Islamic nation in its joys over its revolutions in the face of the oppressors, he recorded a voice recording of congratulations and advice which we will publish soon, God willing," the militant group said.
