Bin Laden says France will pay a ‘high price’ for its policies in Afghanistan

“In a message specifically targeting France, al Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden warned that Paris would pay a ‘high price’ for its policies and that the fate of French hostages would depend on the pullout of French troops from ‘Muslim lands’, in a purported audiotape broadcast on Arabic news network Al Jazeera on Friday.

‘We repeat the same message to you: The release of your prisoners in the hands of our brothers is linked to the withdrawal of your soldiers from our country,’ bin Laden said. ‘The refusal of your president [Nicolas Sarkozy] to withdraw from Afghanistan is the result of his obedience of America and this refusal is a green light to kill your prisoners,’ he added.”
