Qaeda chief threatens ‘thousands’ of 9/11 attacks


DUBAI: Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri threatened the US that the September 11, 2001 attacks will be repeated “thousands of times,” in a video marking the 15th anniversary of the deadly assault. Addressing the United States in a video message posted Thursday on YouTube, Zawahiri blamed 9/11 on “your crimes against us.” He said that if these continue, 9/11 “will be repeated thousands of times”. In the video, Zawahiri cited Washington’s policies towards Arab and Muslim countries, its “occupation” of lands in their countries, and support for their “criminal and corrupt” governments. His threats come as American officials say the United States has become hardened against such well-developed plots as 9/11 but remains vulnerable to small and home-grown attacks.
