As another entry in as-Sahab?s series, ?Pyre for the Americans in Kharasan [Afghanistan],? al-Qaeda?s multimedia production arm has prepared a 3:49 minute video of the destruction of a military vehicle carrying four American soldiers in the province of Konar. The video was issued today, Thursday, December 7, 2006. Captions are featured with the footage, explaining that the Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate, the Taliban, prepared the explosive that was used in the operation, and indicate that the enemy return unaimed fire after the vehicle was hit.
