|Swiss researchers who last November analysed a tape
attributed to Osama bin Laden say they won’t be scrutinising the latest
recording broadcast by the Arabic television network, Al-Jazeera.|
The Swiss analysts said the previous tape was almost certainly faked, despite US claims to the contrary.
The Dalle Molle Institute for Perceptual Artificial Intelligence (Idiap) in Martigny told swissinfo on Wednesday that it had no intention of analysing the latest tape.
United States officials say the recording, which calls on Muslims to fight the US and repel a war against Iraq, is “probably” the voice of Osama bin Laden, suggesting a link between Iraq and bin Laden's al-Qaeda network.
The US said a similar recording, broadcast by Al-Jazeera on November 12, was also genuine, despite analysis by Idiap researchers, who concluded that it was faked.
