'Bin Laden tape' urges attacks

An audio recording said to be of Osama Bin Laden has emerged in which he urges Muslims to rise up against countries that support the war on Iraq.

In the tape – obtained by the Associated Press news agency – the al-Qaeda leader is said to call for attacks on governments in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bahrain, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. Unlike previous recordings allegedly by Bin Laden, this one has a single theme – suicide attacks – the news agency reported. Since the 11 September attacks, numerous video tapes, audio recordings, facsimiles and other statements have been attributed to Bin Laden, but many are unverifiable.
