Narrative and Notes
ReliableThis was the first new video image of bin Laden aired in almost two years. It was unclear when it was taped. Bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri are shown walking through rocky terrain.

Two taped messages accompanied the video, aired to mark the second anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

In the first, a voice purporting to be bin Laden's praises the "great damage to the enemy" on Sept. 11 and mentions five hijackers by name.

In the other tape, a voice said to be that of al-Zawahri threatens more attacks on Americans and calls on Iraqi guerrillas to "bury" U.S. troops.
