Osama Bin-Laden praised slain al-Qaida in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi as the "lion of holy war" in a new videotape posted on the Web on Friday. The 19-minute message shows an old still photo of bin Laden in a split-screen next to images of al-Zarqawi taken from a previous video. A voice resembling Bin-Laden's narrates a tribute to the Jordanian-born terrorist, who was killed in a June 7 air strike northeast of Baghdad.
