As-Sahab, an al-Qaeda media production company, issued to the Internet today, June 22, 2006, a 2:09 minute video in the series of the ?Pyre for Americans in Kharasan [Afghanistan],? of a bombing of a vehicle in Konar province in April 2006, of which several videos of attacks in this region have recently focused. The format of this particular attack sequence is identical to those before it, as the video shows a stage of the construction of the improvised explosive device (IED) to be used in the bombing, and its detonation on the targeted vehicle within a convoy. The camera is shaky as the attack unfolds and soldiers are seen getting out of their vehicles to survey the damage and retrieve the injured. The first-hand perspective continues in the mountaintop where the Mujahideen filming the operation are seen leaving the area.
