Amir of Al-Qa'ida in the Arabian Peninsula, Abu Basir Nasir al-Wihayshi, Pledges Allegiance to Al-Qa'ida Central Amir Ayman al-Zawahiri

The amir (leader) of Al-Qa'ida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), Abu Basir Nasir al-Wihayshi, has issued a new audio message to the "beloved amir," Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri, the new amir of Al-Qa'ida Central (AQC). Al-Wihayshi gives bay'a to al-Zawahiri. AQAP is the second AQC affiliate to do so. The first was Al-Qa'ida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), via a member of its shura council, Abu 'Ubayda Yusuf al-'Anabi, in an audio message released in early July.



Al-Wihayshi criticizes the region's tyrants and promises to "defend the oppressed" in the Muslim and Arab lands. He also promises to "free the holy places."
