Al-Qaida Group Lashes Out Over Syria   04/18 07:01

   CAIRO (AP) -- The spokesman of an al-Qaida breakaway group has slammed the 
terror network's chief, blaming him for the widening rift between rival Islamic 
rebels who are battling each other in Syria.

   The spokesman for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, Abu Mohammed 
al-Adnani, accused al-Qaida's top leader, Ayman al-Zawahri, of "deviating from 
the right approach" and betraying the cause of jihad, or holy war.

   Al-Adnani spoke in an audio message posted on militant websites late 
Thursday.

   Since January, the Islamic State has been engaged in fierce fighting against 
the al-Qaida affiliate Nusra Front in Syria. Thousands of fighters have been 
killed in the infighting.

   The fighting intensified after al-Zawahri stepped into the rivalry. ISIL 
rejected his orders that the Nusra Front take the lead among Islamic fighters 
in Syria.
