Al-Zawahiri: I saw Bin Laden's sensitive side

Here's how the new head of al-Qai'da remembers Osama bin Laden: a sensitive man who cried when his friends lost family members; a father who remained close to his children, despite the hard life of a jihadist; and a terrorist chief who fondly remembered – by name – the 19 men who carried out the September 11 attacks.

Ayman al-Zawahiri, who became leader in June after Bin Laden was killed in Pakistan, related these thoughts in a video posted on jihadist websites yesterday.
