In a video broadcast Friday, Al-Qaida's deputy leader Ayman al-Zawahiri hailed the slain terrorist leader in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, as a soldier, an Islamic cleric and a prince of martyrs. Al-Zawahiri delivered the tribute in a new video aired on the Qatar-based television channel Al-Jazeera. The video clip showed al-Zawahiri, wearing a white robe and black turban, with a picture of a smiling al-Zarqawi over his left shoulder.
