Al-Qaida´s „Islamic State in Iraq“ has released its newest part of the video series „Risen Alive“ featuring Iraqi and foreign suicide bombers.
This time, al-Qaida presents two foreign Jihadi militants named „Abu Hamza“ and „Abu Bakr“ and one Iraq national named „Abu al-Baraa“ – all of whom carried out suicide bombings and are reading their final farewell statements.
In addition, al-Qaida also features the late Abu Laith al-Libi, the network´s chief trainer in the Waziristan camps, and Abu Anas ash-Shami, the main advisor of the late Emir of Al-Qaida in Iraq, Abu Musab az-Zarqaw. Al-Libi died in a 2008 drone attack in Waziristan and ah-Shami was killed in September 2004, when US bombs struck his car near Abu Ghraib, Iraq.
The third edition of „Risen Alive“ was released on December 25 2010.
