Van Gogh killer Bouyeri in al-Qaeda video

4th June 2011, Comments 0 comments

Mohammed Bouyeri, who killed film director and writer Theo van Gogh in 2004, has been included in a propaganda video clip by al-Qaeda, newspaper De Telegraaf reports.

The video was posted earlier this week by as-Sahab, al-Qaeda’s official media branch.

The video calls on radical Muslims to carry out further attacks.

Bouyeri’s inclusion in the video is surprising, the newspaper says, because the video otherwise focuses on senior al-Qaeda leaders such as Ayman al-Zawahiri, who has succeeded Osama bin Laden as the organisation’s leader, Abu Yahya al-Libi and Attiya Allah.   cl
