Al-Qaeda Urges Muslims to Keep Up Protests

In a speech published on jihadist forums on Saturday, Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri urged Muslims to keep up their protests against the anti-Islam film produced in the United States. 

In the seven-minute audio, Zawahiri hailed "the honourable people... who stormed the US embassy in Benghazi and those who protested outside the US mission in Cairo where they replaced the US flag with that of Islam and jihad."
