AL-Qaeda has released a video featuring a senior commander who was rumoured to have been killed in Pakistan in July, threatening more attacks against Denmark after a suicide bombing on its embassy in Islamabad, according to the SITE group which monitors Islamist websites.
“We have warned previously – and we warn once more – the Crusader states which insult, mock and defame our Prophet and Koran in their media and occupy our lands, steal our treasure and kill our brothers that we will exact revenge at the appropriate time and place,” Mustafa Abu al-Yazid said in the video, SITE reported today.

Yazid said the embassy attack “is but the beginning…if you don’t end your errant ways and aggression,” SITE said in a translation of the video message, adding that the date it was recorded was not known.
“As for my final message to the worshippers of the cross in Denmark, I tell them… this isn’t the first nor the last retaliation,” he said.
“Allah willing, we will wipe you from the face of the earth.”
