Dubai: Al Qaeda has promised to "soon" release its slain chief Osama bin Laden`s final audio message, which was recorded a week before his killing by the US special forces in Pakistan`s garrison city of Abbottabad.

In a four-page statement, the terror group said bin Laden recorded the audio message a week before his death which will be released "soon", according to the US monitoring group SITE.

Al Qaeda, in its first statement after the killing of of bin Laden on May 02, confirmed the dreaded terrorist`s death and vowed more attacks on the US and Europe.

Bin Laden`s death will be "a curse that chases the Americans and their agents, and goes after them inside and outside their countries," it said.

54-year-old bin Laden, the world`s most wanted terrorist, was killed in a secret operation by special US forces in Abbottabad near Islamabad.

Al Qaeda warned that bin Laden`s blood would not be "wasted" and attacks on the US and its allies would continue.

"America and those who live in America will never enjoy security until our people in Palestine enjoy it," the statement said.
