AQ apologise for killing Muslims
In an unprecedented move, AQ spokesman, Adam Gadahn, issued a statement expressing condolences to the ‘unintended Muslim victims’ of their operations. It follows increased criticism of AQ, including from extremist scholars and former supporters, who have questioned their indiscriminate use of violence and targeting of Muslims. A recent academic study showed that in 2004-08 only 15% of fatalities from AQ attacks were westerners – the majority were Muslims living in Muslim countries.
