An al-Qaida member who escaped from a US prison in Afghanistan urged his followers in a new video aired Tuesday to acquire nuclear technology. Abu Yahia al-Libi, who broke out of prison in July 2005, appeared in a video broadcast by the pan-Arab Al-Arabiya TV, telling his followers "to get prepared by starting with exercise ... then learn technology until you are capable of nuclear weapons," he said. In the video, al-Libi, who appears to be talking to a group of fighters has a beard and is wearing a long gray robe. The video was the third reportedly featuring al-Libi since he escaped from prison. Al-Arabiya showed two minutes of what it said was an hour-long video exclusively obtained by the satellite channel. It also showed footage of what appeared to be a group of Arab fighters training.
