The leader of al-Qaida, Ayman al-Zawahri, has issued specific guidelines for the conduct of jihad this week. The document stressed the organisation’s need to avoid attacking other Muslims, and those of other faiths inside Muslim countries, alongside a more general urging for restraint. He also re-stated al-Qaida’s military aim to weaken the US and Israel. See the Guardian for more.
