|Ayman al-Zawahri, al-Qaeda's second-in-command, has threatened more attacks on Britain two weeks after two failed bombings and criticised the country's decision to make author Salman Rushdie a knight.|
"I say to (former British prime minister Tony) Blair's successor that the policy of your predecessor drew catastrophes in Afghanistan and Iraq and even in the centre of London," the Egyptian cleric said in an audio tape posted on the internet.
"If you did not learn the lesson then we are ready to repeat it, God willing, until we are sure you have fully understood."
It was not immediately possible to verify the authenticity of the 20 minute tape, which appeared on a website used by groups linked to al-Qaeda, with a still photograph of Zawahri.
