Al-Qaida Leader Vows to Free Jailed Members

Leader of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula Nasser al-Wuhayshi announced on Monday plans to set free jailed Islamist militants of the armed network soon. "We ask God to make us a cause for unlocking your incarceration and relieving your agony," he said in a statement. Although the authenticity of the statement has not been verified, al-Qaida claimed responsibility for two Iraqi prison-breaks in July.
