Al-Qaeda attacks Palestinian poll
Al-Qaeda's second-in-command Ayman al-Zawahiri has appeared in a new video to speak out against elections in the Palestinian territories.
The deputy to Osama Bin Laden said in the video, aired on al-Jazeera television, that only jihad, or holy war, would "liberate Palestine".
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas last weekend called for new elections.
His Fatah party is locked in a struggle with Hamas, which won elections in January and opposes new polls.
