Al Qaeda appeals to sympathisers for donations

It seems the terror network, al Qaeda, is short on funds.



Cairo: Al Qaeda is appealing for financial donations for the third time in a little over a year in a sign that the terror network might be short on funds.

A message posted on a militant website on Wednesday repeats a June 2009 appeal by the group`s top Afghanistan commander, Mustafa Abu al-Yazeed. He said then that many militants in Afghanistan were unable to fight because they lacked money and equipment.

Al-Yazeed was killed in an airstrike in May.

The web message also included an earlier audio recording of Osama bin Laden urging businessmen to direct their alms to al Qaeda.

Abu al-Yazeed`s appeal was echoed a month later by al Qaeda deputy leader Ayman al-Zawahri, who called for financial support from Pakistanis.
