Al Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri has appeared in an audio interview calling on fighters to take Western hostages and exchange them for jailed jihadists.

This was reported by the monitoring service SITE Intelligence Group, though it was also reported that the authenticity of the recording could not be verified.

In recording posted online, Al-Zawahiri had called on the global militant network to kidnap Westerners until they liberate the last Muslim male prisoner and last Muslim female prisoner in the prisons of the Crusaders, apostates, and enemies of Islam.

Zawahiri is believed to be seeking refuge in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border area that is the Taliban's base.
