Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri declared in a video message today that the global Islamist extremist movement has launched a new branch to lead its struggle in the Indian sub-continent.

In the video, found in online jihadist forums by the SITE terrorism monitoring group, Zawahiri said the new force would "crush the artificial borders" dividing Muslim populations in the region.

Al-Qaeda is active in Afghanistan and Pakistan, where its surviving leadership are thought to be hiding out, but Zawahiri said "Qaedat al-Jihad" would take the fight to India, Myanmar and Bangladesh.

Meanwhile, speaking to our news team International terrorism expert Dr. Rohan Gunarathna South Asian leaders should respond to the statement by Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri.
