Ask Al Qaeda! Cyberchat with a difference

Al Qaeda has invited journalists to send questions for an open interview to deputy leader Ayman al-Zawahri in the first such offer by the increasingly media savvy militant network.

An advertisement issued on its website by the group's media arm, Al-Sahab calls on written questions for al-Zawahri to be placed on a web forum.

It did not say whether his answers would come in written, video or audio form.
