      Osama bin Laden has vowed to carry out more September 11-style
      suicide attacks against US interests - and said he reserved the right
      to target Britain.

      In an audio tape sent to Arabic satellite television station al
      Jazeera, the al Qaeda chief also warned US forces to leave Iraq.

      The station has yet to broadcast the tape but has made the text of it
      available to the media.

      Bin Laden warned there would be more suicide attacks within the
      United States and against US interests outside America.

      He said this was to punish the US for its "oppression", al Jazeera
      said.

      "We, God willing, will continue to fight you and will continue
      martyrdom (suicide) operations inside and outside the United States
      until you abandon your oppression and foolish acts," the text of the
      tape said.

      In the text, bin Laden urged Iraqis to wage holy war on
      US "crusaders".

      He also threatened to target Coalition partners, including Britain,
      and said Islamic sympathisers would not be spared, either.

      "We reserve the right to retaliate at the proper time and place
      against all countries that take part in this unjust war (against
      Iraq), namely Britain, Spain, Australia, Poland, Japan and Italy.

      "Islamic countries that take part will not be excluded. This applies
      particularly to the Gulf states, chiefly Kuwait, (which served as)
      launchpad for the crusader forces."

      Bin Laden calls for holy war against US: Al-Jazeera TV

        BAGHDAD, Oct. 18 (Xinhuanet) -- An audio tape purportedly recorded
      by al Qaida chief Osama Bin Laden was aired by Qatar-based al-Jazeera
      TV channel Saturday, calling for jihad, or holy war against the
      United States that currently led an multinational force in Iraq.

        In a voice message addressed to US President George W. Bush, bin
      Laden also called on the United States to withdraw from Iraq,
      saying "You send your sons to Iraq in order to kill them." The voice
      on the tape said "America is bogged down in the swamps of Tigris and
      the Euphrates...Bush (US President) thought Iraq and its oil reserve
      is a free treasure," but now his troops are in a real "plight."

        "The United States now call for mercenary soldiers from the West
      and the East," said the voice, referring to the US-sought
      contribution of troops and funds from a number of countries. The al
      Qaida chief threatened to carry out more suicide attacks inside and
      outside the United States and retaliation against countries joining
      the US-led coalition forces.

        "We will go on fighting you and we will carry on martyrdom(suicide)
      operations in and outside the United States until you stop being
      unjust," said the voice.

        "We reserve the right to retaliate at the proper time and place
      against all countries that take part in this unjust war (against
      Iraq), namely Britain, Spain, Australia, Poland, Japan and Italy. "In
      the message to the Iraqis, the speaker said "This is a new crusade on
      the Islamic world," urging the youth in Iraq's neighboring countries
      not to follow the voices in Iraq, Palestine, Egypt, Jordan, Yemen and
      elsewhere, which call for democratic and peaceful solutions.

        The terror master last appeared in early September when al-Jazeera
      aired a video tape showing him and his top aide Aimen Zawahili
      walking in mountains, both carrying AK-47 rifles. The pan-Arab space
      channel has broadcasted several recorded messages claimed to be from
      terrorist groups and Iraq's ousted leader Saddam Hussein, which
      encouraged Iraqis to resist the occupying troops.

        Criticised of inciting violence, the television, along with Dubai-
      based Arabiya TV channel, has been banned from reporting official
      events in the US-controled country. Enditem
