DUBAI, (Reuters) – Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden urged European nations in an new audio tape aired on Friday to withdraw their troops from Afghanistan.

“We are not demanding anything unjust. It is just for you to end injustice and withdraw your soldiers from (Afghanistan),” he said in the tape, which has German subtitles. Germany holds elections over the weekend.

Bin Laden’s last message was addressed to the American people and was posted a few days after the eighth anniversary of the Sept 11, 2001, attacks.
