June 22, 2006|From Times Wire Reports

Al Qaeda's No. 2 leader has issued a new videotape calling on Afghans to rise up against U.S.-led forces in Afghanistan in the wake of rioting last month in Kabul, the capital.

The video by Ayman Zawahiri -- which would be his sixth this year -- was reported Wednesday by IntelCenter, an Alexandria, Va.-based contractor that provides counter-terrorism intelligence services to the U.S. government.

The tape appears to have been made the day after a May 29 accident in which a U.S. military truck crashed into traffic in Kabul, killing up to five people. The incident sparked riots that left about 20 people dead
