Leader warns al-Qaeda 'are short of funds'

Still lots of bailout funds available.

The leader of al-Qaeda in Afghanistan has complained that his group are short of money.

The terrorist group needs the cash to buy food, weapons and other supplies required in the fight against foreign forces, Mustafa Abu al-Yazid said on an al-Qaeda website.

"In Afghanistan we have a severe supply deficit. The main reason for the weakness in operations is insufficient supplies. Many mujahideen sit and wait and cannot fight for lack of supplies," he said.

"If a mujahid (holy fighter) does not have the money to get weapons, food, drink and the materials for jihad, he cannot fight jihad. Fear Allah and be ambitious in waging jihad through (donating) goods."
