DUBAI - An Islamist website published a video message from Abu Yahya al-Libi, the al Qaeda no. 2 who Washington reported was killed in a drone strike in Pakistan last week, but did not say when the footage was recorded.

It was not immediately clear whether the posting of the film on Tuesday was an attempt to show Libi had survived the attack. He did not refer to the US report in his message and the film was only dated with the current Islamic year 1433.

Libi called on Islamist fighters outside Syria to join rebels in their fight against Syrian President Bashar Assad.

"We call on our brothers in Iraq, Jordan and Turkey to go to help their brothers," he said in the video, released by a group known to be the media arm of al-Qaeida.
