Exclusive Al Qaeda Video Recovered In Afghanistan

August 19, 2002.

SKY Television Broadcasts Exclusive Al Qaeda Video From Tapes Recovered In Afghanistan

CNN International (SKY Digital channel 56 and UHF channel 6) today launches an exclusive weeklong series of never-seen-before footage taken from multiple videotapes recovered from inside Afghanistan by CNN's senior international correspondent Nic Robertson.

Each day this week CNN International will broadcast reports about these tapes in a special five-part series on SKY Digital’s channel 56 and UHF channel 6.

These tapes graphically reveal the expertise, resources and resolve of the Al Qaeda terrorist movement. The five installments of 'Terror on Tape' will air throughout the week and conclude with a CNN Special Report summarizing the series.

Nic Robertson worked for several weeks to track the story, relying on sources cultivated during his years of reporting from Afghanistan. Experts tell CNN that these tapes show Al Qaeda operatives training in the field as they practice assassinations, kidnappings and urban combat.

In many cases, the footage is the video version of discarded documents discovered by CNN's Mike Boettcher last year in Afghanistan. In that discovery, CNN reported on papers, notes, documents and instruction manuals left behind when Al Qaeda fighters fled Kabul.

Many of the documents and manuals included instructions on how to hijack and blow up airplanes, how to build bombs and how to explode trains, ships and other modes of transportation.

Each individual video screens this week from Monday 19 to Friday 23 August, at the following times - 1pm on News Biz Today, 4pm on BizNews and 11pm on Asia Tonight.
