Zawahiri audio 2008.09.20

There's a new Zawahiri audio out today, packaged as a video with an essentially static background made from stills. Only 5 minutes and 53 seconds. Title

تعزية لأهلنا في الدويقة
Condolences to Our People in Difficulties

It's a mainly a routine diatribe against Mubarak's government in Zawahiri's native Egypt, but he talks briefly on Somalia, where the "Shabaab" group operates; that outfit has been calling itself "Army of Difficulties" lately.

The RealPlayer Presentation format
is only four megabytes and contains the same audio as the bulkier rmvb format.
