Syria’s Nusra Front Underlines Al Qaeda Link in Audio Message

The head of Syria's Nusra Front militant group mourned the death of al Qaeda's deputy leader in an audio message that underlined the organizations' close relationship. The message appeared to counter recent reports that it might split from the global network. The audio message from Nusra's Abu Mohamad al-Golani was posted on YouTube overnight. It mourned Nasser al-Wuhayshi, who was killed in a U.S bombing in Yemen in June.
