Al-Jazeera bashed by Saudis

The "newly-appointed assistant to the chief of Saudi Arabia's intelligence services" has stated that Al-Jazeera incites terrorism:

Newly-appointed assistant to the chief of Saudi Arabia's intelligence services yesterday accused Al Jazeera satellite channel of inciting terrorism.

Prince Abdul Aziz bin Bandar bin Abdul Aziz described as "an act to incite terrorism" footage aired on Friday by the channel purporting to show the suicide bombers of a Riyadh residential compound minutes before they carried out their deadly attack last November.

"This is not surprising," he said in the statement carried by the Okaz newspaper. "Since its launch (in 1996), this channel incites terrorism. (This incitement) is not since the events of September 11, 2001, but long before," he added.
