A purported al-Qaida leader in Pakistan says the terror network is losing land and fighters amid a US drone strike campaign.

Ustadh Ahmad Farooq's comments were reported late Wednesday by SITE Intelligence Group, which tracks militant propaganda.

SITE describes Farooq as al-Qaida's Pakistan media chief. It says he spoke of challenges facing al-Qaida in an audio lecture to jihadi forums earlier in January, urging followers to keep faith in God during crises.

The recording's authenticity could not be independently verified.
