CAIRO, Egypt (AP) -- A new video shows al-Qaida's second-in-command paying tribute to several commanders believed slain in a recent U.S. strike in Pakistan.
The terror leader, Ayman al-Zawahri (AY'-muhn ahl-ZWAH'-ree), praises the men in footage posted on a militant Web site.
He urges other Muslims to follow the slain commanders' lead, even though that path "is laced with blood."
He adds that the al-Qaida militants "went to their Lord to complain to him" about what he calls America's injustices and the Pakistan government's betrayal.
al-Zawahri is believed to be in hiding with Osama bin Laden in the tribal regions along the Afghan-Pakistan border.
