CAIRO, Egypt (AP) -- Osama bin Laden, his top deputy and a man identified as a Sept. 11 attacker were shown in brief video excerpts aired Monday by the pan-Arab satellite station Al-Jazeera. It wasn't clear when the tapes were made.
The deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri, was shown claiming the Sept. 11 attacks as a "great victory."
An Al-Jazeera official told The Associated Press the tapes were received a few days ago at its headquarters in Doha, Qatar. Al-Jazeera, known for airing bin Laden statements, said it would air the complete tapes Thursday.
It was not immediately clear how the station received the tapes.
The excerpts aired by the Arab station Monday were part of a series of clips from what appeared to be videotapes from bin Laden's al-Qaida network. In one, bin Laden and al-Zawahri kneeled side-by-side. Only al-Zawahri was shown speaking.
