According to ABC News Online, Qatar’s Al-Jazeera television station has aired video footage of what it says is the murder of US national Robert Jacob in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, by suspected Al Qaeda killers.
More information on the video is available from The Australian
A videotape posted today on a website attributed to al-Qaeda shows what it claims to be the murder of US national Robert Jacob in the Saudi capital by members of its terror network.
Chanting glorifying Jihad, or holy war, is heard in the background on the tape as two men are seen chasing a Western-dressed man who screams: “Wait, wait! No, no!”
Seconds later about 10 gunshots ring out as the man falls to the ground.
The tape, seen on the website http://members.lycos.co.uk/markazilam/markaz.htm, then shows the two men rush to the body. One appears to be slitting the victim’s throat.
The two assailants, who are also dressed in Western clothes, are only ever shown from the shoulder down.The Religion Of Peace strikes again.
Update: Some hard line clerics are saying “enough”.
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) – Six Saudi clerics once affiliated with Islamic militants, including two praised by Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, condemned a wave of attacks against westerners in the kingdom, describing the perpetrators as “a deviant group.”
