Al Zawahiri To Issue New Statement Eulogizing 'A Group of Heroes'

Al Qaeda's number two Ayman al Zawahri will issue a new statement soon to eulogize a number of "heroes," according to a statement posted by al Qaeda's media wing al Sahab on militant Islamist Internet forums. The banner showed two still pictures of men, one of whom is slain al Qaeda militant Abu Khabab al Masri, who was killed in a U.S. airstrike in Pakistan late July.
