BEIRUT - Al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahiri has called for Islamist fighters in Syria to end the infighting that killed a one-time companion of Osama bin Laden earlier this year, according to an audio tape posted online.

In the message, Zawahiri mourned the death of Abu Khaled al-Soury, who was killed by an al-Qaida splinter group in a suicide attack in February, and lamented the "strife of the blind that has befallen the blessed land of the Levant."

Soury was one of the highest-profile victims of rebel infighting that surged at the start of the year, pitting the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) against rival rebels including other hardline Islamists.
