CAIRO (AP) – The Jordanian doctor who killed seven CIA employees in a suicide attack in Afghanistan has called on Muslims in a posthumous message to carryout suicide bombings and become martyrs.

In an audio message posted on militant websites Friday, Humam Khalili Abu-Mulal al-Balawi also urges his fellow Muslims to wage jihad, or holy war, against the West. He says that despotic leaders in Islamic nations have discouraged Muslims from jihad, which al-Balawi laments has become little more than an adventure in the eyes of many Muslims.

Al-Balawi says on the tape that he recorded the message Dec. 29, 2009. He blew himself up a day later at a CIA facility in Afghanistan.
